Actually, it made not be pre6. I patched the kernel per some thread
on LKML a few days before, but had not had the opportunity to reboot
and run it until pre6. The patch was :


--- linux/mm/page_alloc.c.~1~ Tue Mar 20 15:05:46 2001
+++ linux/mm/page_alloc.c Sat Apr 21 19:01:47 2001

if (gfp_mask & __GFP_WAIT) {
memory_pressure++;
try_to_free_pages(gfp_mask);
- wakeup_bdflush(0);
goto try_again;
}
}

It would make more sense that the above change was responsible for the
improvement.
