    I too experienced the same thing. We frequently grep through 6,000 or
    so small files, and current kernels take 50% longer than 1.2.13; in my
    case we also moved to elf only, which I figured accounted for some of
    it, but it's a problem for us.

    I'll perform tests too, if someone tells me what. Maybe Bash or Grep
    needs to be recompiled with newer libraries (?) I'm running
    libc-5.2.18 now, but am downloading 5.3.9 in hopes that things
