SubjectSlow swapon for big (12GB) swap

I am using big swap here (as a backing for potentially huge tmpfs). And I
wonder why swapon on such big (like 12GB) swap takes about 7 minutes
(continuous disk IO). Is this expected? Why it is like that? Can I do
anything to speed it up? Or maybe remove it into the background with low
priority or something like that?

Thanks in advance,

Grzegorz Kulewski
