    Subject2.6.x Scheduler, preemption and responsiveness - puzzlement
    With the 2.6 kernel I expected that my boxes would be responsive under 
    heavy loads such as exacted by updatedb. What I'm finding is that when
    updatedb and other heavy hitters are running, I'm often unable to switch
    desktops or start other tasks. I'm currently using 2.6.7-mm1, but this
    has been true for all 2.6 kernels. I have CONFIG_PREEMPT=y,
    /proc/sys/kernel/kernel_preemption doesn't exist.
    SuSE 9.1, Athlon XP2800+, 512M.
