    Reading or writing?

    The readahead algorithm has been borken in 2.6.x for at least the past 6
    months. It leads to NFS collapsing down to 4k reads on the wire instead
    of doing 32k or 64k.
    An effort was made to look at fixing this, but it turns out that nobody
    really understands the current messy implementation, and so progress has
    been slow.
