Did you try a 2.4.x kernel on both?

2.4.0 has a bad elevator, which may show problems, so please check 2.4.2
if the numbers change. Also, "fsync()" is very different indeed on 2.2.x
and 2.4.x, and I would not be 100% surprised if your IDE drive does
asynchronous write caching and your RAID does not... That would not show
up in bonnie.

Also note how your bonnie file remove numbers for IDE seem to be much
better than for your RAID array, so it is not impossible that your RAID
unit just has a _huge_ setup overhead but good throughput, and that the
IDE numbers are better simply because your IDE setup is much lower
latency. Never mistake throughput for _speed_.
