Perhaps this is related (from 2.4.10-acX thread later on l-k):

Read the ll_rw_blk diff. Basically it tries to avoid too many locked
buffers clogging up memory and killing the box. I'm not totally sure its

Were there recent changes in ll_rw_blk which are being addressed by
"Elevator flow control"? As suggested earlier in this thread, the cause
might be a few layers up, and this seemed relevant.

Can anyone confirm or shed any additional light on this?
