Hello,

just my experience in this topic:
I worked on -pre11 for one complete day after massive nfs server usage, no
problems so far.
current meminfo looks like:

I currently compile kernel with -j 5 while playing mp3s via xmms without the
slightest problem (xosview load is now 8). I tried xmms run as root and user,
makes no difference. I tried starting applications (like mozilla or
applixware), no problem. No mouse hangs or anything else negative. I am _not_
using alsa, but emu10k1 from kernel.
I couldn't even make it crash or skip in xmms while singing Torn together with
Natalie - and listening to that _is_ real stress :-))

You only have to find some strategy to come around these formerly noticed alloc
failures, perhaps by an idea to free up pages instantly if an alloc would fail
otherwise (now). I like the overall performance very much, Andrea.

Regards,
Stephan
