I also have used swap on LVM for over a year. The only problem I've ever
had was with LVM1 not allowing me to swapoff any lvm-based swap
partitions. For that reason, on lvm1 boxes I make a big ext2 partition
and put a swap file on that. Slightly lower performance.. but I don't
mind. For me swap on servers is just there to prevent the box from OOM
killing stuff before I can get on and shut things down gracefully.
