    I am just preparing that mail :-)

    Roughly 400 MB of swapout. And two seconds isn't that bad ;-)

    I don't understand why an ouch-per-second is reasonable. The mempig is
    the only process that runs on the machine and the blk_congestion_wait
    uses HZ/10 as timeout value. I'd expect about 100 ouches for the 10
    seconds the test runs.

    The 4x performance difference remains not understood.
