I am not sure this is just a question of small variations. The hdparm
-t differences between these two versions is quite significant. This
evidence would imply that the two approaches are making fundemental
different decisions about what my hardware can do!

Under 2.2.17

/dev/hda:
Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 21.86 seconds = 2.93 MB/sec

/dev/hdc:
Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 20.81 seconds = 3.08 MB/sec

Under 2.4.0

/dev/hda:
Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 6.58 seconds = 9.73 MB/sec

/dev/hdc:
Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 6.59 seconds = 9.71 MB/sec
