You already gave an answer yourself.
You have enough space in another dir, so place the logfile over there:

# TAG: cache_swap_log
# Location for the cache "swap log." This log file holds the
# metadata of objects saved on disk. It is used to rebuild the
# cache during startup. Normally this file resides in the first
# 'cache_dir' directory, but you may specify an alternate
# pathname here. Note you must give a full filename, not just
# a directory.

So make this /i/have/enough/room/here/log

And you won't have slow restarts if there's enough room free.
Ideally you place the log file never in de cache dir itself. One mistake
and it will be removed. Better name it good and place it somewhere else.
But still...some people don't think before they rm ;-)
