Prior behaviour (and probably still current), is that the initrd file
created when installing a kernel holds a reference to swap that's used
when resuming.  You can make a new initrd (mkinitrd) or add a resume=
parameter to the kernel line in the grub.conf file.  With the location
for the swap written after the equals sign.

NB:  If you use a swap file in a location that needs mounting before
it's possible to access it, I don't think you're going to be able to
resume from it.
