SubjectRe: ZONE_NORMAL exhaustion (dcache slab)

I just experienced this problem on UP with 513M memory. About 400m was
locked in dentries. The system was very unresponsive - suspect it was
spending gobs of time scaning unfreeable dentries. This was with -mm3
up about 24 hours.

The inode caches looked sane. Just the dentries were out of wack.
