All I did was ensuring that I was on a recent enough kernel for
TRIM support (2.6.33 and I think Debian added it to 2.6.32-12),
and added noatime and nodiratime in /etc/fstab for mount options.

ext4 for consistency with other machines.

I have 4 GB of memory in my laptop and do not currently have swap
configured, but if I were to enable swap it would be via a file
instead of a partition.
