Sure.

Just for record here is the patch to remove and cleanup. I can split it
into 2 patches (one for removal and the other for the cleanup) but this
can be done later as well.

Subject: [PATCH] memsw: remove noswapaccount kernel parameter

noswapaccount parameter has been deprecated for some time without any
complains from users so we can remove it. swapaccount=0|1 can be used
instead.

As we are removing the parameter we can also cleanup swapaccount
because it doesn't have to accept an empty string anymore (to match
noswapaccount) and so we can push = into __setup macro rather than
checking "=1" resp. "=0" strings
