The JIRA was NIFI-1008 [1]. I looked into this a couple of times but ended up going
down very deep rabbit holes and not getting the desired impact. I think we could probably
use some refactoring of StandardProcessSession and FileSystemSwapManager to clean
up some of the existing code in such a way that this would become easier to tackle.

see no perf implications.  That we must fix.
