Hello list.

I'm going to give this patch to the reported for testing.  But it seems
like something we should be doing.  Don't know if its worth while to
make mkswap check and activate this flag.


Patch looks good, note this is only a flag in the parted worldview,
in the actual msdos partition table it becomes a different partition
type then ext# (0x82 vx 0x83), so nothing mkswap can do here. Also note
mkswap does not care much about what to format as swap it will also happily
format a file as swap, and it gets passed the partition, not the whole device,
so there really is nothing mkswap can do here.

Hans
