SubjectRE: IDE0 /dev/hda performance hit in 2217 on my HW - more info - maybe extended partitions
Date
It seems to be the output of vmstat that isn't matching things.  First it
says
it's getting near 10M/s, but if you divide 128M/27 seconds, it's more like
4.7.
So where is the time being wasted? It's not in cpu either.

Now lets look at hda7 where vmstat reported 2-3meg/sec. Again, the math
says it's a rate near 5. So it still doesn't make sense.
