Subject[patch 1/2] vm early reclaim orphaned pages (take 2)
From
Date
How about this?

--
SUSE Labs, Novell Inc.


We have workloads where orphaned pages build up and appear to slow
the system down when it starts reclaiming memory.

Stripping the referenced bit from orphaned pages and putting them
on the end of the inactive list should help improve reclaim.
