Suppose f(x) is a polynomial with integer coefficients of degree 100. Find the biggest possible number of pairs of integers n<m, such that f(n)=m and f(m)=n.

Details and assumptions
You are asked to find the biggest possible number of pairs, not the biggest pair. Hence, your answer is just an integer, not a pair of integers.
