With kernel 2.6.16-rc6-git10 dnotify support active 'vmstat
10' shows a constant 200+ context switches on an idle system when the
midnight commander 'mc' file manager is opened in an rxvt, but only the
usual few context switches with dnotify removed, inotify support present
in both cases. I dont know if this is normal and expected behavior,
and if not, when it may have changed, but it seems a bit high context
switches rate, eh?
