While Con's token-disable patch has fixed the screen freezes, the kswapd CPU
load issue at the start of a memory hog remained.

On another matter, Andrew Morton posted this patch:


Rik hinted that it could be the cause of the CPU eating problem. I have
applied it (to 2.6.10-rc3 with token-disable and vm-throttling already
applied), and - BINGO! No noticeable kswapd CPU load at all!

Yours, Mikhail Ramendik
