Subjectlinux-1.3.80


just wanted to say that 80 compiles fine and boots just dany.
however I have noticed something wierd. I tried pounding on the system by
doing a updatedb, rm -rf `find . -name "*.orig" -print ` and make clean
in the linux top level directory at the same time all which went well.
However when I tried running hdparm -t /dev/sda several times , the reads
dopped from the first time I ran hdparm from about 1.39 to 0.9 MB persec
then finally back up to 3.88Mb/s which is usually around what I get. Is
there a reason for this. Can the new read ahead be causing this? If so
maybe we should have a way of changing the amount of read ahead depending
on the drive cache
