Indeed, since new BIOS-es don't have that problem anymore with
partitions larger than 137 GB; nevertheless, I was responding to
sombody who proposed a separate boot partition and a swap one that
would be primary in that scheme - the point of my post being to show
that there was no need for the _primary_ swap partition (it could very
well be a logical one). Still I notice there are some people who
prefer to keep /boot separate "just-in-case" something goes wrong with
other parts of their system, so they could always reuse /boot.
