Yes, please. I only whipped up the readahead patch last night. Since
it's single threaded, there's a lot less to go wrong compared to
TuxOnIce, but it's still possible that there's some bug I haven't
noticed yet. It would be good to be able to see it's definitely that patch.

I'd start with 2.6.36-rc5 unpatched, and only fall back to 2.6.35 if
that's unreliable.
