    I don't set pre-empt, not sure about scheduler, recheck that in daytime,
    SATA (Via chipset) on different box doesn't have the problem, neither
    another box with SATA and ICH5, this is Via chipset, two runs after boot:

    Linux 2.4.31-sp

    root@sempro:~# hdparm -tT /dev/sda

    HDD specified as 58MB/s at the fast end, so these figures look reasonable.
