The same problem happens with multiple partitions as well, when the user
tries to remove the card. It has been solved by first checking whether
disabling swap is safe or not: if it's safe, it's disabled; if it's not
safe, a warning dialog pops up. (Same kind of mechanism is used to
handle the case when there is an open file on the MMC.)
