Disk IO with the 3.4 kernel

Hello all
Is it just me or is anyone else having a problem with the computer
locking up when there's any heavy disk input/output going on? If I
untar a large source tarball (like Firefox or something) then other
applications lock up and stop responding if they need to read anything
at all off the disk. I never used to have this problem so I'm assuming
it's something that changed in the 3.4 kernel. For me it seems to be
quite a serious regression.
