Description pjones 1999-08-25 06:20:28 UTC
its built in a sparc32 environment where PAGE_SIZE is 4096;
the signature and such go to the wrong places, and the
sparc64 kernel looks at PAGE_SIZE-10 for "SWAP-SPACE"; its
at 4086 instead of 8182;  this breaks.

This looks like its fixed in the current tree, but an errata _should_
be released.
