    So, "these horrible responsiveness problems where it may take many seconds for a menu to appear when clicking on it or a half-minute to do a VT switch!" aren't normal? I've been using linux for too long it seems, because my last windows system (Athlon XP2400+, winxp) wasn't much better than this, and when I upgraded the hardware I thought these issues were normal.

    Yeah, I used to love the way that XP would swap out the web browser I was actively using when I was copying a 2GB file from one drive to another in the background.

    It doesn't work with 2.6.35. I've no idea what this patch is to be applied against, since the 2.6.36 merge window isn't even open yet. The article not lkml post doesn't mention what this patch is based on.

    Add me to the list of people who didn't even realise this was a 'bug' but is f***ing glad that someone is fixing it.

    I still can't figure out which is more annoying linux going unresponsive under intense disk pressure or windows staying "low responsive" and never finishing it's I/O tasks as they go from 6 minutes to complete to 30. Both ways seem equally annoying to me.

    In my experience, Windows 7 also has responsiveness problems when doing heavy I/O. I had thought that it was just unavoidable with current computer architecture. I would love to be wrong about that.

    Michael, please fix this sentence:

    On his system when writing 300M to the /dev/zero file the problem was even worse.
    To /dev/zero? The mail clearly states from it to the ssd...
