Using <size>auto</size> for the swap partition of a machine with **8GB** RAM
results in AutoYast suggesting a swap partition of size **2GB**. With such a
setting, hibernation will not be possible. I would assume that a size of at
least the amount of RAM would be suggested.

This is part of the XML I'm using:
<partitioning config:type="list">
<partitions config:type="list">
...some partitions stripped, there should be space available in the device...
<create config:type="boolean">false</create>
<crypt_fs config:type="boolean">false</crypt_fs>
<filesystem config:type="symbol">swap</filesystem>
<filesystem_id config:type="integer">130</filesystem_id>
<format config:type="boolean">true</format>
<loop_fs config:type="boolean">false</loop_fs>
<mountby config:type="symbol">device</mountby>
<partition_id config:type="integer">130</partition_id>
<partition_nr config:type="integer">6</partition_nr>
<resize config:type="boolean">false</resize>
<type config:type="symbol">CT_LVM</type>

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use <size>auto</size> on a swap partition

Actual Results:
For a testmachine with 8GB RAM, 2GB swap was suggested.

Expected Results:
A swap size of at least the size of the installed RAM should be suggested.
