now, running the debug-enabled kernel for some time (the whole day - ~7h
uptime), kswapd0 shows same sympthoms (started at around 4h uptime). it
is triggered later than before (where it started almost immediately after
boot), but now i get something more interesting from Regs:

hope this helps to find out how to solve it.


It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the
