identifying swap partitions

Good day,
There doesn't seem to be any facility available to a
module to obtain information about swap devices in the
2.4.7 kernel. I have attempted to use
"is_swap_partition" and "swap_info" in swapfile.c but
my module fails to load stating unresolved symbol.
I've searched /proc/ksyms and neither is there, and
since I'm using both optimization and modversions I'm
assuming that it is not exported for use. Is this
correct, if so is there some alternative call that can
be used to obtain the information?
One additional request, please cc your
answers/comments to
Thank you,
Ken Subratie
