I have been using the swap patch posted here by Kumba on 27/5/2004
and it seeems to work, why has it not been merged? Is it incorrect?
Without it swapon segfaults and enabling swap is impossible.
It does seem to work for me on my R5K machines.
My only oddity so far is I'm unsure if it runs on R4x00 machines or
Indigo2's. My I2 lacks a framebuffer, and ip22zilog is shot dead in
2.6.x, so It's near impossible to tell whether I get a successful boot
or not on the machine. I'm confident Peter's patch works for the most
part, but if anyone w/ an I2 R4x00 machine and Newport can test
2.6.5/.6/.7 + patch and let me know if it boots or not, I'd be
interested. Right now, I'm not able to boot anything past 2.6.4 on said
machine, and have no idea how to capture all the boot info from the
kernel startup through userland (netconsole didn't seem to work when I
last tried it).
