Why was I able to compile 2.2.19pre2 and run 10 bonnie benchmarks at 256MB
This failed on 2.2.18.  pre3 and up had a lot of patches added that I didn't
want to have to deal with.

Specifically, I needed to fix the "VM: do_try_to_free_pages" problem in 2.2.18.

Andrea's VM global was reported to fix it, and that was first in 2.2.19pre2. 
I'm also working on getting FreeS/Wan on this comp and they suggest 2.2.17, so
I'd want the closest version to that I can get, and will handle the load.

Maybe quik had trouble with them, but I'm using bootx.
