SubjectRe: Linux 2.6.32-rc3
I wrote earlier, in a reply on the Poor desktop responsiveness with
background I/O-operations thread, that sometime between .30-rc6 and
the .31 tag all of the recent improvements in perceived performance
has been lost.

I'm happy to report that as of the cmpexch64 fix, that regression
is gone. Performance under load -- and particularly with significant
paging -- shows a vast improvement (on my aging, 32-bit laptop).
