Ubuntu should officially support swap files

Registered by Rolf Leggewie on 2006-12-20

Swap files are in common use. Users can be in for a nasty surprise (lost data!, see bug 48517) when they find out that Ubuntu does not do swap files. Yes, that is right, ubuntu will let you activate swap files but then severely endanger the data on the partition where it resides on. This spec is about the necessary steps to take to have ubuntu support swap files properly. The move away from sysvinit to upstart needs to be taken into account.
