Note that this is all about in RAM swap. If we saturate the RAM on FR
and use flash for SWAP, you end up with something just unusable.
Considering this feature, you reduce RAM space which will cause
swapping, but the swap access is a lot faster. With this feature we
could augment caching within software and kernel and reduce IOs to the
SD cards (which are very slow on this phone).
