I'm not sure how much of the test execution time is spent in the console
code -- if you send lots of five-character or one-character strings to the
console, the most of time is probably spent in syscall entry/exit, VFS layer,
verify_area and similar places. Try sending 32K blocks at once to see the
real console throughput.

Have a nice fortnight
