    I don't think this function should be here. This indicates that
    lots of writeout is happening due to pages falling off the end
    of the LRU.

    There was a bug recently causing memory estimates to be wrong
    on Opterons that could cause this I think.

    Can you send in 2 dumps of /proc/vmstat taken 10 seconds apart
    while you're writing at full speed (with 2.6.13 or the latest
    -git tree).

    A dump of /proc/zoneinfo and /proc/meminfo while the write is
    going on would be helpful too.
