Package: swapd
Version: 0.2-10
Severity: normal

README.Debian needs updating as step #4 ambiguously states as follows:

4. In include/linux/swap.h under Linux source directory change the value
   of MAX_SWAPFILES from 8 to 256. This defines how many swaps you will be
   able to have.

Yet grepping for MAX_SWAPFILES in include/linux/swap.h produces the following:

# grep MAX_SWAPFILES /usr/src/linux/include/linux/swap.h

 * MAX_SWAPFILES defines the maximum number of swaptypes: things which can
#define MAX_SWAPFILES           (1 << MAX_SWAPFILES_SHIFT)

The MAX_SWAPFILES declaration as the value (1 << MAX_SWAPFILES_SHIFT) has been declared as such for quite some time now. At least, the last four major kernel versions have it stated as such and included the MAX_SWAPFILES_SHIFT variable
with value set to 5..

Please clarify how the MAX_SWAPFILES/MAX_SWAPFILES_SHIFT variables are to be manipulated
in swap.h so this package can be utilized.

Thank you.
