Running 2.4.17-pre4 + preempt-kernel + ext3-0.9.16.

System survived a preliminary stress test, involving I/O and VM
pressure, with no problems.  Seems solid here.

Also, subjectively the combination of 2.4.17-pre2+ and this ext3 patch
yields better performance under load.  Can't comment which provide the
benefit without testing, but hey, it's the user experience that counts.
