Subject: [PATCH] blkid: more sanity checks for swap v1
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.ext4
Date: Thursday 17th April 2008 21:55:53 UTC (over 9 years ago)
mkswap followed by pvcreate on a block device
will still turn up as "swap" in blkid, because
pvcreate isn't particularly careful about zeroing
old signatures.  (neither is mkswap, for that matter).

Testing for appropriate version and page counts
gives us a bit more confidence that we have a
real swap (v1) partition.
