Default Patches changing the swap size suggestions (#744129)

These patches are resolving the rhbz#744129. SWAP_SIZE_LIMIT constant should
be set appropriately, but I cannot get this information from jmarchan. Once I
have it, I will change it. Since I will be OOO from Monday to Wednesday, I'm
sending these patches in advance, just in case they were needed during these
days. Review them please and in case it is necessary, modify the SWAP_SIZE_LIMIT
constant and push them.

Default Patches changing the swap size suggestions (#744129)

This is the new version of patches resolving rhbz#744129. Few comments:

1.) As it can be seen on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=744129 I haven't been
able to get the info about the upper bound. So I've tested 128 GB swap on x86 architecture
(which should be the most limitting one) and it worked. I think this value should be ok
for users. If somebody wants bigger swap than 128 GB in future, we can modify the constant
after doing some more tests. But I think it's not necessary now.

2.) I know using a constant in storage/formats/swap.py//Swap._maxSize is not ideal, but
the other option was to import storage.formats.swap to iutil.py where this value is
also needed in swapSameAsRam function. Since I think about iutil.py as a set of utility
functions on the lowest level I didn't want to make it dependent on storage.

3.) Should these go also to master and f17-branch?
