This means, that the CPU is only 7.3 of 52.8 seconds working. This is what one
can hear: If I run programs where the time they need is the same time as
strace says, then I have 100% CPU load and the cpu fan starts to blow
heavily. In the case here, the heat fan does not do anything. It looks like
the SATA driver simply blocks the CPU while doing whatever...
