Hi there,

could you please consider changing those very slow behaviour in
"drivers/block/ll_rw_blk.c"? ... Benchmarked against 2.4.18 this is horribly
slower ... Doing some heavy disk i/o, want to start another thing, system
freeze for some seconds ... Opening a xterm , Ctrl-D to leave, this takes
about 5 seconds and somewhat is doing flushing to the disk.

Maybe req_finished_io ?

Adrian, could this be the problem you've experienced?

Afaik this was changed for 2.4.19-pre7 and above.

Kind regards
        Marc-Christian Petersen
