SubjectRe: vm-33, strongly recommended [Re: [2.4.17/18pre] VM and swap - it's really unusable]

I too can recommend the -aa kernels. I have been using the -aa kernels
since 2.4.10, and IMHO they are just as stable if not more stable than
the vanilla kernels. The difference is in the performance, especially
the swapping as Andrea noted. Specifically they are better at I/O, both
throughput and interactive responsiveness during heavy I/O. I have also
seen the best utilization on my little 100/switched network using these
kernels. I also use -aa on my Thinkpad and it works great there too. I
haven't tried the XFS but I did try tux and it just smokes!

Anyways just my 2 cents,


BTW: Big thanks to Andrew Morton for stepping up and splitting the VM
pieces for merging.
