and activating NEW_BUFQ_STRATEGY.

it's just excellent piece of work!!!!

after starting several cp processes same time, machine works slower but
completely no choking!!!

looks like problem with choking (that prevented me to upgrade to 1.6) is
finally solved.

few questions:

1) how about BUFPAGES, while it's still 5% default while it now buffers
only metadata not data.

i set it to 4MB on 192MB machine, looks more than enough.

or am i wrong?

2) will metadata memory be dynamically allocated in future versions, or
static allocation for metadata is better somewhat?

3) looks like large apps works much faster. difference is rather large in
phoenix, esp. loading time. what was improved? :)
