    Hello Roger,

    this does not solve my problem with NFS-copies. Just for information. I tried and did not work.
    Besides I expected the patch to make the free pages pool somehow bigger during file-copies, but ended up with this situation:

    total: used: free: shared: buffers: cached:
    Mem: 921726976 918573056 3153920 0 12337152 816504832
    Swap: 271392768 0 271392768
    MemTotal: 900124 kB
    MemFree: 3080 kB
    MemShared: 0 kB
    Buffers: 12048 kB
    Cached: 797368 kB
    SwapCached: 0 kB
    Active: 473628 kB
    Inact_dirty: 331796 kB
    Inact_clean: 3992 kB
    Inact_target: 1940 kB
    HighTotal: 0 kB
    HighFree: 0 kB
    LowTotal: 900124 kB
    LowFree: 3080 kB
    SwapTotal: 265032 kB
    SwapFree: 265032 kB

    The MemFree isn't really a lot compared to inact_dirty. knfsd fails at least.

    Regards, Stephan
