Hi Alan,
Hi linux-kernel,

I just saw, that cat /proc/sys/fs/inode-nr gives negative values
for the second part.

559 -211555


174805 -3

I'm using 2.4.3-ac13.

I see this both on SMP and non-SMP, HIGHMEM and non-HIGHMEM, if
that matters.

The first value for the second example (SMP+HIGHMEM machine) also
seems a bit large...

exact .config or more data available, if needed.

Otherwise this kernel is very stable for me, and it feels really
good in interactive performance.
