There is some variance between tests. On the 5 kernels tested bunch,
2.4.16 was up for about 1.5 days before it's test was run. (the other
kernels were booted before tests)

mp3 played 372 of 392 seconds (95%) fresh boot
mp3 played 312 of 371 seconds (84%)

2.5.1-pre1 was up for about 18 hours, and I re-ran the test on it.

mp3 played 361 of 365 seconds (99%) fresh boot
mp3 played 350 of 378 seconds (93%)

It may be normal variance, or fresh boot syndrome.
