just tried your preempt-kernel-rml-2.4.19-pre7-1.patch.
I'm using automount (v4) here and am getting this in syslog:
Apr 17 22:32:26 steel kernel: lockd exited with preempt_count 1
Apr 17 22:32:26 steel kernel: rpciod exited with preempt_count 1
Every time automounter decides to drop an nfs mount.
Some time ago i've read on lkml that such kind of messages aren't very
good to see, so decided to drop you a note.
The .config attached.
didn't see them with 2.4.19-pre2-ac2
interactive feel quiet acceptable, although 2.4.19-pre2-ac2
'feels' still better, maybe because of O(1) scheduler, dunno.
No skips/clicks in xmms while compiling kernel and opening
a pile of images with gimp. Besides the messages in syslog
