Well, there are enough special cases how to do things on btrfs and I'd
like to avoid introducing another one.

I still don't see why it's not possible to do the snapshot with an
active swapfile.

The non-btrfs changes can go independently and do not have to wait until
we resolve the swap vs snapshot problem.

I did a simple test and it crashed instantly, lockep complains:

memory: 2G
swap file: 1G
kernel: 3.17 + v3
