hijacking your thread, my apologies:

And I might add, on the likes of a pi-3b, demands that swap somehow be 
migrated to spinning rust or an SSD, else from the descriptions on 
binutils above this msg, will likely finish off the best of a u-sd card, 
which its booting and running from now. Because I intend to build a new 
rt-kernel for that pi, on that pi, the 60 GB SSD is already plugged in 
but I've not yet moved swap. And it sounds like it will need far more 
than 2GB, so I'm thinking at least 10 would be indicated based on the 
binutils comments. Comments otherwise?

Thanks everybody.
