I recently experienced a filesystem issue that forced
me to use the rescue system and I saw two issues regarding
mounting filesystems that seemed bad to them

1) swap space is mounted by UUID
That is problematic. If your swap space is corrupted you
use mkswap. There practically is no other option.
Doing so, however, you change the UUID and your system
comes up without swap pretty much without warning.
Use mkswap -U <old-uuid> ...
That works but requires that I mess around with UUIDs.


- perhaps , make an exception , and not to use

UUIDs for swap ::

for instance ::

/dev/sdb3 swap swap defaults 0 0
