    This is ext3 with ordered data?

    Wow minix is faster than ext2 @) That certainly looks strange.

    Any chance to test XFS too?

    Normally (non data journaling, noatime) journaling fs shouldn't have any
    overhead for database load, because database files should be preallocated
    and the database should do direct IO in/out the preallocated buffers
    with the FS never doing any metadata writes, except for occassional inode
    updates for mtime depending on what sync mode that DB uses (hmm, I guess a
    nomtime or verylazymtime or alwaysasyncmtime mount option could be helpful
    for that)

    That's the theory, but doesn't seem to be the case in your test. I guess
    your test is not very realistic then.

    Kind of ordered I believe.
