Description of problem:
In FC3, swap spaces are labelled SWAP-hda7 (for example). To label a
swap space, you say mkswap -L SWAP-hda7 /dev/hda7. This is not
documented in the mkswap man page, and should be.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mkswap -L SWAP-hda7 /dev/hda7
Actual Results: the page doesn't mention -L or labeling a swap space
Expected Results: It should mention this capability.
This tags along bug 127892.
Fixed in util-linux-2.12p.
For FC-3 I will release this cosmetic fix only if there will some other bugfix.

There was some other bugfix and it looks like that there will be another
one (see bug #152956). Can we have this documented then? So far even
'mount -h' does not mention an existence of -L option.
