SubjectRe: 2.6.11-mm2 vs audio for kino and tvtime

After 2 days of running rc1-mm1, I've reverted to plain rc1, for one
reason. The last 2 days, its taken amdump/amverify till after 5am to
finish, and its only done 2, instead of 3, units of setiathome, which
is now shareing time with the einstein boinc project.

Running plain rc1, the amdump/amverify run was commonly done by a bit
after 2am, starting at 1am, and seti was getting enough time to do 3
units all the time. So an hour to hour & 45 max, to over 4 hours is
the comparison there.

Note that we're talking mm1 here, not the mm2 in the subject line as
it wasn't visible when I went after the patch at kernel.org. And
there still is not an -mm2 there, so I assume that was a typu.

So while -mm1 didn't crash, and in fact was quite frugal with its
memory use, so I haven't had the oom crashes some have reported. It
just isn't as fast by a noticable amount.

And I have no idea where to point fingers. Running kino, there were
many noticable instances of its video import being hung for at least
a second at a time, something I haven't noticed with rc1 to anything
near that extent. A night and day difference, showstopper to usable
there.

tvtime also had many more few stutters & skipped frames. In either
case, I'd often have to restart tvtime with the new settings to get
decent audio, so there is no change there.

Scheduler? DarnedifIknow. All I could see was the canary getting
sick, sorry. :(
