Tuning? That thing needs throwing out, it's fundamentally buggered. Why
didn't anybody look at how the I/O drtying thing works first?

What you need is a feeback loop against the rate of freeing pages, and
when you near the saturation point, the allocation rate should exactly
match the freeing rate.

But this thing has nothing what so ever like that.
