SubjectRe: unfair stress on non memory allocating apps while swapout (in 2.4)

To follow up on myself: the question was why are programs which do not
allocate memory be delayed while one program is eating up all memory. This
clearly means they are not delayed in the malloc call but simply the kernel
will not schedule them while he is bussy to page out processes.
