Subjectfstab swap options obscolete?
In order to get multiple swap partitions/files to work at the same priority, 
you'd use the pri=NUM option in /etc/fstab.
Now i've set this (pri=-1) on both and dmesg shows that they still get added
at different priorities. first -1, second -2. Now if i swapoff them and
swapon them it starts at -3 even though there is no longer a -1 or -2. Is
this correct behavior?
I'm kinda going on the assumption that loading multiple swap partitions
together at the same priority will basically make the kernel use them in a
striping mode. Is this the case? If not, how would i specifiy priority
besides merely the order they're placed in /etc/fstab ?
