    I forgot about vmstat, but this is -ac12, anecdotal evidence - my system
    (weak) performs far better under heavy load (mpg123 nice'd to -20 + apt/dpkg
    + gcc), than with vanilla -ac12. To get it to compile on -ac, just hand-hack
    in the patch, and s/CAN_GET_IO/can_get_io_locks/ in vmscan.c.
