    Not yet, I'll make a quick hack for this when I get back next
    week. It's pretty obvious now that the 2.4 kernel cannot get
    enough information to select the right pages to evict from

    For 2.5 I'm making a VM subsystem with reverse mappings, the
    first iterations are giving very sweet performance so I will
    continue with this project regardless of what other kernel
    hackers might say ;)


    IA64: a worthy successor to i860.
