You show-offs with your big memory and everything in it... Okay, boot that
puppy with mem=256m and try that again, particularly with -j4 (or -j8 with
HT on). I bet THAT will give you some IOwait!

I think you do want to try HT after you find out the memory is small
enough. Pure curiousity on my part, I assume it will work, although the
results might not be what I expect.
