I'd be interested to hear from Justin if reducing
/proc/sys/vm/dirty_background_ratio as I earlier suggested helps.

ZONE_NORMAL isn't much larger than ZONE_DMA32 on this machine and both
lowmem zones have an abundance of free memory which suggests pdflush's
ratio isn't being met to commence background writeout while at the same
time ZONE_NORMAL is being depleted as the result of constant nfs
GFP_ATOMIC allocations that cannot try direct reclaim.
