Hmm. I can't seem to recreate it with Ying Han's testprog, at least.
That's with the fs/buffer.c patch applied, but that shouldn't matter since
Nick reports that his (roughly equivalent) patch didn't help.

I'll continue to run it for a while, but it's been going for about an hour
now, with vmstat reporting bo/bi at roughly 5-10MB/s pretty continuosly.

Of course, that's with my SSD's and an insanely fast Nehalem box, so my
timings are likely rather different from most other peoples.
