mkswap in installer does not support space greater than 2GB

Bug #119900 reported by Bryan McLellan
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
busybox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: busybox-udeb

mkswap in busybox 1.1.3 limits pagesize to 2GB:

#define V1_OLD_MAX_PAGES ((0x7fffffff / pagesize) - 1)

mkswap is rewritten in Busybox 1.3 and does not contain this limitation, however no longer supports v0 swap space.
