Why? Page size is an architecture dependant thing, swap.h is
not arch-dependant and, as such, shouldn't include things like
page size or MMU innards.

Then why do you include swap.h? It's at least as much a
kernel header as <asm/page.h> and arguably even more so
(since page.h provides info on the machine you're using
while swap.h provides info on kernel stuff).
