    SubjectCONFIG_BIGMEM and rawio
    Date
    Im reading the BIGMEM codes, and it seems that BIGMEM and rawio are
    incompatible.
    Is that correct?
    Are there any plans to change that?
    I think that rawio must do something if BIGMEM is set:
    * the database vendors might use rawio
    * large databases could run on computers with > 2 GB memory.

    Btw, why do you use the full buddy algorithm with 10 lists for bigmem?
    currently, only single pages are allocated, so 1 or 2 lists should be
    sufficient.
