Note that you don't need RAID0 to do striping on swap partitions. You can
assign each swap partition a priority. If all have the same priority, the
kernel (versions 1.3.6 and higher) will automatically use something like
striping on them. For more info, see 'man 8 swapon' and 'man 2 swapon' for
more info.
