Subjecti/o stalls on 2.4.14-pre3 with ext3

I tried out 2.4.14-pre3 plus the ext3 patch from Andrew Morton and
encountered some strange I/O stalls. I was doing a 'cvs tag' of my local
kernel-cvs repository, which generates a lot of read/write traffic in a
single process. I see that pre4 fixed a get_request race, (I think) but
it only applies on SMP, right?

All was going well when it seemed to stall for about 20 seconds at
least, during which it dribbled some blocks out to disk but made little
progress generally speaking.

System: UP Athlon 1.4GHZ, 512MB ram, SiS5513 IDE UDMA-100, Red Hat 7.2
plus above kernel. Ext3 is mounted in ordered-data-mode.

Here's the vmstat 1 output during that period, and for a while
before and after:
