Subjectglibc-2.0.6/kernel-2.1.82 interface problem
Hello Folks,

I finally decided that I needed to take the dreaded plunge to glibc6.
Upon completion, I recompiled Bonnie to see what timing differences
might crop up. The results were pretty disturbing when compared to
libc-45.4.43 performance, so I dug in with strace.

Bottom line: Compiling Bonnie with libc-5.4.43 headers fixed it.
I haven't (yet) started mucking up the headers; thought I'd report
first to see if it's a known/do-this-instead-dummy problem :)

-Mike

Thanks to glibc folks; the move was _remarkably_ easy. Great job!
