I don't have a wd0d - the disk is FAT only, no disklabel, just the
autogenerated dynamic one, and I definitively don't want any content of the
disk be destroyed by swap, besides the swapfile.

Why does mount_mfs need a special part of the available swap at all? What
I would like to say is "go and get XXX MB of the swap space available now,
I don't care which one".
