now that my alpha has root on RAID, I tried to configure swap on raid0b
(I want a reliable machine :). Seems to work fine, but the RAID doesn't
shutdown cleanly: after a halt/reboot the parity is always dirty.
If I comment out the swap line in /etc/fstab no problems.

It looks like the swap device is not closed at shutdown, at last not before
the parity status is updated. How hard would it be to add a shutdown hook to
close the swap device(s) ?
