I think it's a little more restrictive, in that if you hibernate
into the shared swap space from one OS, you can't run any other
OS that shares that swap space because it will clobber the
hibernation state of the first one. But as long as you don't
switch to another OS while one is hibernating, it's safe to
share the swap.
