Actually, swap is, by definition, already on the disk. The swapfile
maintenance structures in the kernel are saved when you suspend, so
corruption should not be an issue. I haven't checked the kernel
suspend code in a while, but I believe it writes buffers (disk sync)
prior to suspend, so dirty segments should not be a problem either.
I've never seen file corruption due to a suspend that wasn't due to
some problem other than the suspend sequence.

I'm screwing up. Why? What does it *look* like I'm doing?
