This is wrong: Linux will not use more than 128MB of a single swap
partition. If you need truly gratuitous amounts of swap, you can do
this with having multiple swap partitions. So even on a 2.0.x kernel,
the configuration described can have 256MB of active swap. (Whether
this is worthwhile is another question.)
