so far, I've had one succes story with the patch I
posted a few hours ago. It showed a huge performance
improvement over systems without my patch.

However, my patch just _might_ have other influences on
huge-memory systems (unlikely, but it might), so I'm
asking all of you to go out and grab/grep my patch to
test it on your system and give me some feedback saying:
- how many memory your box has
- how heavily it was used
- how the performance changed (better, worse, about the same)

Then I'll know what to do to improve kswapd further...
(yes, we (linux-mm folks) are busy with improving the vm system)
