If trimonce is not set, then savecore will most likely be able to recover a
kernel dump from a dump (swap) device, after which it clears metadata on the
device.  This clearing is what prevents the swap pager from being able to
exclusively "claim" a device.  The kernel has no idea whether swapon intends to
trim the device or not.
