    While developing the latency tracer in the -rt kernel, Ingo and others
    discovered that some SATA controllers can produce very bad DMA
    starvation at higher speeds. A latency trace of such an event looks
    like the entire system is going in slow motion. Presumably, vendors
    do this to improve benchmark scores.

    Try forcing your drives to a lower speed.
