And on yet another side note Mike, I just did a make -j8 for all make
options in my makeit script, something I don't normally do, and while
running 2.6.20.3-rdsl-0.31, building 2.6.21-rc4, the machine remained
100% responsive, worst case keyboard lag that I observed might have been
200 or 300 milliseconds. The machine remained usable, which to me is the
bottom line. And no, I wasn't running xmms at the time or watching
tvtime else I'd have awakened the missus.

I'm having a hard time justifying your continual fussing as its obviously
a huge improvement to me. What makes your system and loading so much
different from mine I wonder...
In the meantime I'm a very happy camper about this patch.
