I'm guessing compiling LFS systems almost all day long falls under I/O
intensive apps.

Are there downsides from the low latency patch? It improves I/O handling
and some other things i've heard on linux kernel list, but it was never
clear to me if there are performance degradations in other areas.

And, I can't seem to find the low latency patches. URL please
