Default Re: glxgears stutters in Fedora, not in Ubuntu

Nopat is clearly the reason... adding nopat as a kernel argument has fixed the jitter and poor framerate I previously experienced.

Thank you for those who recommended this fix!
You don't need to use nopat with the 2.6.29 kernels from Koji , IMO 2.6.29 is much more stable than 2.6.28 or 2.6.27.
