I'd be surprised if the limit is still at 2GB per partition nowadays,
on machines with 4GB or more in physical RAM and disks which are
switching the way they are measured from GB to TB.

In addition, see my laptop...

# cat /proc/swaps
Filename                                Type            Size    Used    Priority
/dev/sda7                               partition       4891280 676     -1

...and then this

(limit removed since RHEL3, which is reeeeeally old)

Best regards.
