massive reduction of swapped out applications in the light of a 220+
MiB Cache. This on a 320 MiB System with about 2x swap. As a result,
interactive behaviour (this is a notebook) is much better. Before the
patch I had about 50-60 MB in swap for my workload (vmware + netscape +
plus kernel compile + updatedb). Now it is below 5 MB, although this is
still to much (yes, I know, I could turn off swap completely :-)

I also took the OOM-Killer patch, although it never was a real concern
for me.
