   Is it possible to configure the swap space such that it is used
   sequentially instead of interleaved?

   Currently, the 1.0 (i386, but I suppose that doesn't matter much)
   kernel I'm running at work is using

   config		netbsd root on wd0a swap on wd0b and sd0b

   The only other partition on wd0 is a backup partition that is normally
   not mounted, i.e. file system usage of wd0 is light and fs usage of sd0
   can be heavy. Therefore I would prefer all the swap space on wd0b to be
   used before that on sd0b.


Did anyone ever reply to this message?  I would like to do the same thing.
