    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
