Allocation faliures with highmem seems cured (at least under heavy
emulation, didn't tested real hardware yet). Robert, could you give it
a spin and see if you can still reproduce the faliures now?

Only in 2.4.11pre6aa1: 00_rb-export-1

Patch from Mark J Roberts to export the rb library function to modules (he's using rb trees in a module).

Only in 2.4.11pre3aa1: 00_unmap-dirty-pte-2

Dropped, it generated a false positive on s390 that implements slightly different semantics for pte_dirty (using per-page physical dirty bitflag maintained by hardware).

Allocation faliures with highmem should be cured. Swap seems smooth and Andrew's workload also seems ok. Still untested on real highmem at the moment and I'd love feedback on it. I will be able to test very soon on real highmem too thanks to osdlab.org resources.
