Never mind, but, beware, swapping is broken for 2.3.38 with R3000.

While talking about the subject, I've put some assumptions into the
optimisation which seem to be valid for R3000As, but I am not exactly shure if
they are true for other R2000/R3000 variants. Thus, I'd like to have some
feedback from other boxes, for example DS2100/3100 or Bagets.
