Should swap be started in an earlier runlevel?
As it is now, swap activates in boot runlevel, and this occurs practically after everything else has loaded on boot and prior to arriving at the login prompt. It seems to me that swap should be activated earlier on in the boot process.
I tried at one point, to move swap to the sysinit runlevel, but it seems that its the first thing to go when doing a halt or reboot.. so I’m not sure how to go about ‘fixing’ this.
Keep in mind that if we do move swap to another runlevel, setup-disk needs to reflect this as well.
