hello, btrfs was corrupts, when using swaps on this FS But can using swap on loop devices, when in loop devices mount files, and using this files for creating and work swap is good

(logical example) On btrfs creating file "swap" # losetup /dev/loop0 swap # mkswap /dev/loop0 # swapon /dev/loop0

This sounds a lot like a bug in btrfs, and if it is to be fixed, the filesystem code is the place.

Also, Swapspace is no longer under active development. I don't think I'll find time to add new features such as adding a new way to mount swap files. :(
