for i in /sys/block/sd*/queue/scheduler ; do echo -n "scheduler for $i was:" ; cat $i ; echo anticipatory > $i ; done

Should show you the scheduler for all libata/scsi discs, and switch to
anticipatory. It probably works for hd* as well, but I don't have any
around to test.

I had ridiculous md raid performance (on resync) using cfq at least once.
Unfortunately I never bothered trying to track it down, and I didn't check
the throughput after the resync was done either. Also, I don't recall the
kernel version, but it was either 2.6.18 or 2.6.20.

Since it is a very simple test...
