USB boot.
The kernel command line is: initrd=/boot/mycore.gz quiet noisapnp pci=use_crs intel_rng.no_fwh_detect=1 nozswap pause showapps host=hpdc7100 waitusb=2:UUID="1afba5ee-97b5-4eac-bea1-42339ac8225b" tce=UUID="1afba5ee-97b5-4eac-bea1-42339ac8225b" mydata=xorgdc7100 lst=corexorg.lst BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz

That message come up at boot (in the same way it comes like "ramswap skipped" etc.).
For me, its not really a bug, just a misleading message.

There is nothing in the kernel command line that would prevent the use of an existing swap partition.

Again:
- there is no swap at all in that pc
- the message at boot (blue letters) say a swap is recognized
this is a bit weird.

Hi floppy
If you enter   fdisk -l   does it report a swap partition?

Hi floppy
If you enter   fdisk -l   does it report a swap partition?
result (no swap):

You are mistaken.  4.4 says:
"Possible swap partition(s) enabled."

That is neither incorrect nor misleading.
