Re: 2.4.0-test7-vmpatch2 very sluggish on Toshiba laptop

It seems I have a talent for speaking too soon, as this was actually not

I'll still have to look closer at what vmstat shows me after I do the
test with bunzip2. (Laptop packed away for the night.)

I've got everything mentioned in the Changes file updated now.
