In the end I imagine you'll be much happier if you scrounge for more
RAM, but you probably already knew that...

I'm not sure I understand your problem, but I'll be happy to help if I
can.  We have machines here using /dev/md0 as swap.  Is that roughly
what you are trying to accomplish?

Here's the mdtab.

# mdtab entry for /dev/md0
/dev/md0  raid0,4k,0  /dev/hda2 /dev/hdb2
# mdtab entry for /dev/md1
/dev/md1  raid0,4k,0  /dev/hda3 /dev/hdb3
# mdtab entry for /dev/md2
/dev/md2  raid0,4k,0  /dev/hda4 /dev/hdb4
