SubjectRe: Is it normal for freezing while...
Wow, responsiveness is wonderful with these patches.

Will they make it into 2.4.17, (ie: I've seen the -pre2 changelog, did
you incorporate them into -pre2)?
Even throughout the entire dd, it remained responsive
(mouse/cursor/network/etc).

Attached is the vmstat log during the dd.
