Is appreciated, thanks.

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/andrea/kernels/v2.4/2.4.20aa1/05_vm_16_active_free_zone_bhs-1
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/andrea/kernels/v2.4/2.4.20aa1/10_inode-highmem-2

The former is the most important and, alas, has dependencies on
earlier patches.

hm, OK. I've pulled all Andrea's VM changes and the inode-highmem fix
into a standalone diff. I'll beat on that a bit tonight before unleashing
it.

These numbers are a little odd. You seem to have only lost 200M of
lowmem to buffer_heads. Bill, what's your take on this?

Maybe we're looking at the wrong thing. Are any of your applications
using mlock(), mlockall(), etc?
