We are using kernel 2.4.19 on an embedded system based on an x386. We
have a single ext3 filesystem, the root filesystem, in a DISKONCHIP.
Every 15-20 seconds kjournald consumes a large percentage of the CPU

have found references to this problem and a suggested workaround.
However I have found that the workaround does not work under 2.4.19
(others have found this as well).
I'd like to know if anyone has been successful trying something like
Mount the (root) filesystem as ext3
echo 40 0 ...
