You can only swapon(2) swap partitions.  Run

  $ sudo mkswap /dev/nvme0n1p4

and reboot, and it should work just fine.

swapon(8) does a lot more than merely call swapon(2), including overwriting any SWSUSPEND signature[0].

Guix does not do this.

It could, either at the expense of code manually kept in sync with util-linux, or by embedding a copy swapon(8) in the initrd, enlarging it.

Kind regards,
