    I can sort of confirm this, except on a different kernel version.
    This kswapd0 taking 100% cpu is on my 2.6.12-rc2-mm3 compiled with cachefs.
    Next time I boot into it I can check my sysrq-P and see if cachefs is
    causing it on mine...
    It tends to be after something has heavily used my hard drive.
