Stop me if you've heard this one before -

But there is one additional observation:

dbench performance has regressed significantly
since 2.5.8-pre1; the performance is equivalent
up to 8 instances, but at 16 and above, 2.5.8 final
takes a nosedive. Performance at 128 instances
is approximately 20% of the throughput of
2.5.8-pre1 - which is in turn not up to 2.4.xx
performance levels. I realize that the BIO has
been through heavy surgery, and nowhere near
optimized, but this is just a data point...

hdparm -t shows normal performance levels,
for what it's worth
