Subject[patch] mm-cleanup-1 (2.4.0)
From
Date
The following patch cleans up some obsolete structures from the mm &
proc code.

Beside that it also fixes what I think is a bug:

if ((rw == WRITE) && atomic_read(&nr_async_pages) >
pager_daemon.swap_cluster * (1 << page_cluster))

In that (swapout logic) it effectively says swap out 512KB at once (at
least on my memory configuration). I think that is a little too much.
I modified it to be a little bit more conservative and send only
(1 << page_cluster) to the swap at a time. Same applies to the
swapin_readahead() function. Comments welcome.
