    SubjectMemory leak in 2.6.11-rc1?
    	Hi all,

    I've been running 2.6.11-rc1 on my dual opteron Fedora Core 3 box for a week
    now, and I think there is a memory leak somewhere. I am measuring the
    size of active and inactive pages (from /proc/meminfo), and it seems
    that the count of sum (active+inactive) pages is decreasing. Please
    take look at the graphs at

    (especially the "monthly" graph) - I've booted 2.6.11-rc1 last Friday,
    and since then the size of "inactive" pages is decreasing almost
    constantly, while "active" is not increasing. The active+inactive
    sum has been steady before, as you can see from both the monthly
    and yearly graphs.

    Now I am playing with 2.6.11-rc1-bk snapshots to see what happens.
    I have been running 2.6.10-rc3 before. More info is available, please ask me.
    The box runs 3ware 7506-8 controller with SW RAID-0, 1, and 5 volumes,
    Tigon3 network card. The main load is FTP server, and there is also
    a HTTP server and Qmail.
