As I suspected there is the VM in our way. Also reiserfs could be an
issue but I am not aware of any regression on the reiserfs side, Chris?

I tend to believe it is a VM regression (and I admit, this is what I
would bet as soon as I read your report before being sure the VM was in
our way).

One way to verify this could be to run Oracle on top of rawio and then
on ext2. If it's the vm you should still get the slowdown on ext2 too
and you should run as fast as 2.2 with rawio. Most people uses Oracle on
top of rawio on top of lvm, and incidentally this is was the first
slowdown report I got about 2.4 when compared to 2.2.
