Is it possible to do this?

I have two swap files, and I want to designate one of them as also a
dump file.  I tried to put ``sw,dp,-p=50'' on the dump file entry but
``swapctl -A'' still says it is using priority 0.

I don't want swapping to overwrite a crash dump ...

Do something like this (an example using a file as swap):

/swap/swap.1    none            swap    sw,priority=2   0 0

Yup, that works, even when using ``sw,dp,priority=100'' (ie, the
dp portion can intervene and it still works).

Thanks - the obvious answer is the hardest to find!
