hello everyone,

two days ago, I updated my system (i386) to 4.99.6. Today I noticed a
big perfomance hit during high harddisk activity. The system becomes
unresponsive and locks up. Even X dies with connection lost or broken.
While watching top, I saw that lfs_cleanerd goes up to 30%.
After reverting the kernel back to 4.99.5 or 4.99.4 everything is fine
again and lfs_cleanerd stays low at 1%.
Is this only on LFS or does anybody see a similar behaviour on ffs ?
I'll update my system with todays sources and hope the problem vanishes...
