    Werner, have you given it a shot? With this fix in place, the
    dcache/inode fragmentation issues in 2.1 are very dramatically improved
    on low memory. I'm very pleased indeed with this patch: even if it's
    only prune_dcache(0), it is still being called much more often when we
    get short of memory.
