    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
