    Probably this is wishful thinking on my part, but I would have hoped
    that most of the read-ahead they did was for stuff that happened to be
    on the cylinder they were reading anyway. So long as their read-ahead
    doesn't cause much extra or delayed disk head motion, what does it
    matter?
