Interesting. Here are my test results:

root@lkp-nex04 /home/wfg# echo 3 >/proc/sys/vm/drop_caches ;dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null bs=128k count=32768
32768+0 records in
32768+0 records out
4294967296 bytes (4.3 GB) copied, 19.0121 s, 226 MB/s
root@lkp-nex04 /home/wfg# echo 3 >/proc/sys/vm/drop_caches ;dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null bs=2M count=2048
2048+0 records in
2048+0 records out
4294967296 bytes (4.3 GB) copied, 19.0214 s, 226 MB/s

Maybe the /dev/sda performance bug on your machine is sensitive to timing?

Thanks,
Fengguang
