    I already adjusted it. :-)
    But, In my desktop, I couldn't make to consune my swap device above
    half. (My swap device is 512M size)
    Because my kernel almost was hang before happening many swapping.
    Perhaps, it might be a not hang. However, Although I wait a very long
    time, My box don't have a any response.
    I will try do it more.

    I mean I will test your patch by myself.
    Because I already have a embedded board and Desktop.

    I agree with you.

    I didn't say your patch had a regression.
    What I mean is just that I am concern about it.
    Actually, Many VM guys is working on server environment.
    They didn't try to do performance test in embedde system.
    and that patch was submitted in mainline.

    Actually, I am concern about it.

    Could you send me that debug code ?
    If you will send it to me, I will test it my environment (ARM-920T, Core2Duo).
    And I will report test result.
