SubjectRe: Adaptive Readahead V14 - statistics question...

My patching was borked as can be seen in:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=114956084026066&w=2

I've therefore benchmarked two corrected patches from Wu:
http://web.comhem.se/~u46139355/storetmp/adaptive-readahead-2.6.17-rc5-wu-v1.patch
http://web.comhem.se/~u46139355/storetmp/adaptive-readahead-2.6.17-rc5-wu-v2.patch

Revised Conclusion: On _this_ machine, with _these_ operations, Adaptive
Readahead in its current incarnation and default settings is a slight
_loss_. However, if the readahead size is lowered from 2048 to 256, it
becomes a slight _gain_ or at least stays in parity with normal readahead.

I suggest others to test multi-thread, multi-cpu, more than/less than my
2GB memory, sata-disks, different disk speeds etc etc.
