Comment 275 for bug 121653

Hello Chad,

I hadn't got time yet to test with radeon driver. However, today I upgraded
my memory chips to 4GB and now I'm using no swap at all (!). With this
configuration I can perfectly resume after suspend with iowait at only 2-3%.
That's why I suspect that this bug has nothing to do with fglrx, and is more
related to kswapd.

I will recheck one of these days with radeon plus something to eat huge
chunks of memory.

Regards,

Jaime
