hdparm -I /dev/hda reports:

My setup with hdparm 3.1 is:

hdparm -m 8 -a 8 -X 34 -c 1 -A 1 -d 1 -u 1 /dev/hda

multcount = 8 (on)
I/O support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
nowerr = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 8 (on)
geometry = 827/64/63, sectors = 3334464, start = 0

If I turn off using_dma, hdparm -t reports 4.55 Mb/s, when turn
on reports 2.40 Mb/s, why ?
