    SubjectRe: Problems with too much memory (?)

    So I suspect linux for having problems with too much memory.

    My linux is 2.1.35, slightly modified (PCspeaker, Hypertech cdrom,
    Network block device, mingo's performance patch into sched.c).

    30% difference is quite a big one, and I suspect problems somewhere
    in mm / buffer code.

    [BTW mingo's patch speeeded up my system by 30% some time ago - and
    it was not still included in linux kernel. Why? Could someone
    compare 2.1.35's performance with 2.0.29's?]

    I have made extensive changes to the inode subsystem, it may fix the
    problems you are seeing. So if Linus sticks what I sent him into
    2.1.37 you can test things out when he releases it.

    Yow! 11.26 MB/s remote host TCP bandwidth & ////
    199 usec remote TCP latency over 100Mb/s ////
    ethernet. Beat that! ////
