    SubjectRe: [2.4.17/18pre] VM and swap - it's really unusable

    -rmap is 2.5 stuff.

    I would really like to integrate -aa stuff as soon as I can understand
    _why_ Andrea is doing those changes.

    Note that people will _always_ complain about VM: It will always be
    possible to optimize it to some case and cause harm to other cases.

    I'm not saying that VM is perfect right now: It for sure has problems.

    AFAIK Andrew's code simply adds schedule points around the kernel, right?

    If so, nope, I do not plan to integrate it.

    What is 00_nanosleep-5 and bootmem ?

    2.5 stuff.
