Anyone else seeing severe VM system hangs with the today's bits?
symptom is: lockup which starts when starting memory hogs (larger X
clients, emacs, ..). A bunch of processes appear to be hung in
thread_sleep_msg inside vm_fault(); more specifically, vm_fault+0x82e;
it appears to be in the middle of the second of the two occurrances
.. which appears to be "wait for pageout daemon to clean pages" logic.
My kernel sources have some local mods so they aren't pure -current,
but nothing I've changed touches the VM system...
