    AFAIK, no, you need a large enough single swap partition. I don't know
    if this limitation will be removed eventually or if is simply not possible.

    There is compression, but the amount can not be predicted to cover all
    cases, of course. It is safer to have more swap than ram.

    And of course, we have to remember that for suspend (ie, suspend to ram)
    swap is not used at all, AFAIK. It is only used for hibernation (ie,
    suspend to disk).

    But in some machines suspend to ran simply fails, whereas hibernation
    succeeds.
