SubjectRe: [PATCH] Remove BKL from NFS read/write code + SunRPC...
there's also a technical report that describes work we did recently to
improve write performance, which summarizes the web page Trond listed

we're publishing a revised version in the June 2002 Usenix technical
conference proceedings; if you intend to cite the paper, we'd prefer that
you cited that one instead.
