I would interpret that differently. I would say we scan less because we
don't need to scan as much, kswapd reclaims less for the same reason, and
ditto for pageout ;-) The reduction in scans does seem _way_ high though...

wrt allocstall, I bet if I do a few runs, I'll see mucho variance there
(could be wrong.. hunch)
