SubjectRe: [2.6.26-rc7] shrink_icache from pagefault locking (nee: nfsd hangs for a few sec)...
(Sorry for the resend, the wrong Dave Chinner's email address was used)

Is NFS involved or is this XFS only? It looks like XFS-only but no harm in
being sure.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is a problem where a lot of dirty inodes are
being written back in this path and we stall while that happens. I'm still
not getting why we are triggering this now and did not before 2.6.26-rc1
or why it bisects to the zonelist modifications. Diffing the reclaim and
allocation paths between 2.6.25 and 2.6.26-rc1 has not yielded any candidates
for me yet that would explain this.
