Hi Jens,

I've been testing this from your git version which builds as

Unfortunately it's not doing too well.

When building a kernel with 'make -j 8' on my AMDX2 64bit, the screen
repeatedly locked up for several minutes at a time,and my music player
also froze.
In total the full kernel build took over 80 minutes, normally it's only
about 15.

However the machine seems to have recovered correctly, & now everything
is back to normal.

Maybe it does need the congestion handling after all?
