When will the no-swapout patch be included in a 2.2.x or 2.3.x kernel release
?

Bye.

In 2.3.x I rewrote shrink_mmap to work with a real page-LRU and I also
used an MM pressure algorithm linear that should behave similarly to the
one I developed in the no-swapout patch. If the 2.3.x algorithm doesn't
work well for you let me know. thanks!

Swap out heuristics are excellent in 2.3, but weak in 2.2. I
consistently apply you no-swapout patch in 2.2 and it helps
a lot. Last I heard Alan was still considering / testing for
2.2, so I just keep my fingers crossed :)
