It seems clear that USB flash swap, alone or in any
combination, fails early in buildworld. 1 GB of SD
flash swap seemed to work consideraby better, but
even it slowed greatly when 500 MB swap was in use.
3 GB of USB mechanical swap seems to work. 3 GB of SD flash
swap (2 GB plus 1 GB) also seemed to work.
These tests were not with the same kernel and sources,
which makes the comparisons rather suspect.
The machine is now reverting to r334939 using 1 GB + 2 GB of
SD flash swap. If that succeeds I will then run buildworld
for each case using the same kernel, world and sources.
Thanks for reading!
