Subjectswapping in 2.6.24-rc5-git3
Hello,

does /proc/sys/vm/swappiness still work as expected?
# /proc/sys/vm# cat swappiness
0

but scp-ing 2GB file causes many processes are swapped out due to increase of
the file cache size. Why? This is totally catastrophic behaviour on the desktop.

Is there a way to avoid it except turning off the swap?
