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.
