Performance is, indeed, better. My Thinkpad T21 feels slightly on steroids
with -wli-2 :-). Some problems, though, were encountered:
1. fs/dcache.c/d_validate() function was removed in your patch, but it is used
in at least one place ( fs/smbfs/cache.c/smb_dget_fpos() ).
2. With 2.6.0-test11 vanilla, suspend-to-ram/suspend-to-disk was working
nicely. With -wli-2 suspend fails on 'stopping tasks' phase, and aborts with

Dec 13 01:08:47 localhost kernel: Stopping tasks: ======================
Dec 13 01:08:47 localhost kernel: stopping tasks failed (1 tasks remaining)

Hope this helps.
