Can freebsd make use of a linux-swap as swap space?

FreeBSD doesn't need to format swap before use, and seems perfectly content using any contiguous span of blocks as swap space -- even ones containing filesystems (oops!).

Afterwards, you will need to re-mkswap the partition before Linux will be able to use it, though.
