Somewhat unrelated to your other issues, but why are you swapping direct
to disk but using RAID for everything else?  If you get disk error on
one of your swap partitions that might lead to a panic or some other bad
outcome.  If you are using RAID mirrors to protect against data loss
from disk failures, you should (in my opinion!) be using a mirror for
swap too.
