SubjectRe: [BK] ReiserFS changesets for 2.4 (performs writes more than 4k at a time)
Thanks for benchmarks.  It suggests that the new code doesn't scale to 
lots of threads as well as the old, but performs much better for single
threads. Maybe Oleg can comment on why that might be --- I have no idea.

On the whole it looks like a win, but why more threads perform worse in
some cases probably is worth trying to understand. Maybe we should have
a seminar on exactly what tiobench is doing and how it interacts with
this code.
