I'd be very surprised if it were possible to have swap on a MMU-less
machine (no virtual memory, page faults, etc.). Except for this nitpick,
the patch looks fine, but my knowledge of MM is close to zero (and
also of the new config language, but I'll have to learn it soon).

Should rather be (from just reading kconfig-language.txt):

config SWAP
depends on MMU
bool "Support for paging of anonymous memory"
default y
