Actually, now that you have sized the partitions. you could use "gpart
resize" to shrink the (effective) swap partition, leaving a "hole" (of
unused diske space) -- for now.

Later, you could use "gpart resize" again to reclaim (some of) the
unused space for your swap partition, should you want to do so.
