On one of my all snaps devices I had the need to create swap space but wanted it
in place on reboot so I created a devmode snap:
This is a throwaway snap for 'managing' (trying not to oversell this thing ;)
swap files (as opposed to swap partitions) that I created for myself until
snappy supported this properly but feel free to use/steal/improve it to unblock
I'm not sure what the plans are here: whether it is a gadget thing, a snap
config thing for the core snap or something else. If people think managing swap
by 'type: app' snaps is useful as an interface (eg, 'swap-control') let me know
and I can submit a PR.
