I dont know if you wrote the same bug, but you wouldn't recognise
the current version of the routine.

All sysinst does is write the values to /etc/fstab, so the user
can change the number (must easier if there is a correctly formatted
line in the file).  Actually capping at (swap + memory)/2 would
allow sysinst to generate an mfs /tmp on a swapless system.
