The profile is interesting:

- There's a ton of idle time there.

- The CPU scheduler is hurting. Nick and Ingo are patching up a storm to
fix a similar problem which Jeremy Higdon is observing at 200,000
IOs/sec. This will get better.

- That 60-disk LVM array is costing us in the new unplug and congestion
code. Jens, didn't you have a tune-up for that in the works?

- I'm surprised that you didn't see big gains from ext3-fsync-speedup,
even though it appears that the test uses fdatasync().
