swapoff error; buffer memory

Hi Everybody !

I have a strange problem in my newly ported kernel:
The amount of buffer memory is unusually high according to
meminfo (more then 48 MB on a board with 64MB memory);
if I use a swap partition it is immediately completly used
(104 MB size) and when I shut down the system, swapoff
generated a "swap_duplicate" error ?

I have used both a 2.2.16 standard kernel and a 2.2.18 kernel from linuxppc,
the results are identically.

Any idea what is going wrong ?
