Chris,

Still have the data:
63 pages (258048 bytes)
90 pages (368640 bytes)
139 pages (569344 bytes)
30 pages (122880 bytes)
87 pages (356352 bytes)


I'm rebooting to 2.6.5-rc1-mm2 and will re-run. I have do have
versions of direct_read_under that do smaller i/o and also
1 that does forks off and does 'sync' calls every few seconds.

I'll give ext2 and try as well.

Daniel
