- yes, this is a bug in 5.2. greg lehey is working on it (i think
  so)

- mirroring swap _is_ useful because it's an backend store for
  memory pages. if you lose your swap partition and the kernel
  wants to page in, you or better the kernel will have a problem.=20
  haven't tried that but i think the machine will panic.
