Do you run with local disks or with NFS mounted disks?

Presumably, but I've not seen an offical statement from Ragge yet that the
changes to the pagedaemon code and the vm mapping are in his current
builds. You can snapshot the kernel tree and build the kernel but be aware
that you will probably lose userland stuff (ps, etc) that depend on the
kernel structures.
