[PlanetCCRMA] kjournald configuration

I am trying to change the commit interval for kjournald from 5 seconds
to something like 30.

The reason is because I am having periodic and I should say constant
disk access. This issue freezes other priority processes including X and
thus mouse and keyboard.

I am running planet kernels and Fedora on an HP laptop. As far as I been
able to google it seems that I need to recompile a new kernel with a new
value for the variable ¨journal->j_commit_interval ¨  in the file  ¨
fs/jbd/journal.c ¨

Has any of you had this problem, any suggestions ?
