Disk layout is not relevant.

Yes, you risk loosing performance if you have swap, as the OS then risks
swapping out parts of Squid due to relatively low I/O pressure in certain
situations which typically occurs during high load situations (where it is
worst if this happens..)

The only benefit of having swap on a Squid server is if you nighly also
run heavy log processing scripts on the server and then temporary may need
more memory than you have.
