If you really want to experiment with swap on an LVM volume (why?) you
should resequence your startup so that vgscan gets run *after* /etc
is mounted but *before* setting up swap.
It's rather late running vgscan after you've *already* started up LVM.
vgscan should be run to detect LVM-related disk configuration changes
*before* using LVM proper.
