I'm running pre-2.0.31 SMP and a make -j gave me a couple
of these today...

try_to_free_page: state(2) stop(1812923) i(1812902)
sleep instead of fail

Haven't had time to investigate and I only joined the SMP club
on this patch.


BTW [offtopic] Anyone ever tried to run a Buslogic 958 with a
Fujitsu 2954QAU (4.0G UW) ? Mine'll only run at Fast-10
not Fast-20. I've got an IBM drive that runs on fine the the BT958
at Fast-20 and the Fujitsu runs fine at Fast-20 on an a AHA-2940U
Any Ideas please... (It's NOT term or cabling !)
