    Confirm. I only wanted to add that only 2.4.19pre2aa1 and vm-29 can
    deadlock, all previous -aa kernels and vm-?? patches are rock solid
    AFIK. The bug is just fixed, it was a missing UnlockPage. The bug was
    introduced while fixing an highmem balancing thing (that nobody ever
    reported on production machines so I don't consider such problem a
    showstopper, but nevertheless vm-30 will fix both the new pratical and
    the old mostly theorical problem).
