swapin-readahead-3.patch no good for me

Hi all,

I applied the patch today, and though at first it seemed to work quite
well, I encountered some very strange behaviour. My system was 97% idle
with a load average of 6 or 7, and responsiveness was completely gone
while trying to compile ddd 3.1.
xosview showed a swapping activity > 20 all the time, the machine hardly
calmed down when I aborted the compilation.

My system is a dual P133 with 32MB RAM.

Bye, Patrick
