SubjectRe: 2.[45] fixes for design locking bug in wait_on_page/wait_on_buffer/get_request_wait
Hi Andrea,

I've applied your patch to 2.4.19 final and 2.4.20 final and those "pausings"
still exists when I do a full kernel tree copy with "cp -a linux-2.4.19
linux-2.4.20". When I am in a screen session and try to do a Ctrl-A-C to
create a new screen session it comes up within 3-5 seconds ... If I want to
switch to another session with Ctrl-A-N it sometimes happens fast and
sometimes within 3-5 seconds ... I've put above in a "while true; do ...;
done" loop. There is nothing else running or eating CPU and also nothing else
eating i/o. This does not happen with virgin 2.4.18.

This is with a Celeron Tualatin 1300MHz, i815 chipset, 512MB RAM, UDMA100 HDD,
DMA enabled.


multcount = 16 (on)
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 0 (off)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 8 (on)

Does also appear if unmaskirq is set to 1.
