There is no filesystem layer involved after swapon.

How do you avoid that when you're swapping to a swapfile?

the file's blocks are mapped on swapon and after that the kernel
writes directly to these blocks. The only performance penalty you'll
see is if the file is heavily fragmented.

Ah, interesting, thanks.
