[ros-dev] A reimplementation of reactos' cache manager supporting alternate filesystems better (including ext2)

Sorry to answer a question not addressed to me, but, in my opinion, a  
swap partition is not a very optimal way for organizing a swapping  
space nowadays. A swap file is way better in this regard.

To finish my thought, FAT filesystem driver has really nothing to do  
with a swap partition file system. It has something to do with a  
pagefile though.
