well, it's just the swapin/swapout rate being too slow as you noticed. I
didn't benchmark -mm in swap workloads, so it may very well be fixed in
-mm with Nick's patches. At this point in time I've more serious
troubles than the swap speed, and -mm can't help me with those troubles
(4:4 is a last resort I can take from the -mm tree, but I'm trying as
much as I can to avoid forcing people to 4:4 on the <=16G machines that
have huge margins with 3:1 and 2.4-aa, 32G are used to work fine too
with 3:1 on 2.4-aa, infact I'm trying to avoid 4:4 even on the 64G
machines).
