Seems to depend on the hardware used. On my test box, 2.4 is faster by

Arjan van de Ven

AMD Duron 700Mhz with 128Mb of 133Mhz Ram
2 IBM 15Gb ATA100 disks in RAID0 raid

tested kernels:
2.2.18 + raid patch + latest IDE patch

compiling 2.2.18 with gcc 2.95.2

1st run 2nd 3rd
kernel 2.2.18/raid/ide 3:28.909 3:28.819 3:28.840
kernel 2.4.0test12pre7 3:28:520 3:28.534 3:28.546
