One thing I just found out - my old *laptop* is 4-5x faster than the
10krpm scsi disk behind an old cciss raid controller. I'm wondering
if the long delays in dispatch is caused by an interaction with CTQ
but I can't change it on the cciss raid controllers. Are you using
ctq/ncq on your machine? If so, can you reduce the depth to
something less than 4 and see what difference that makes?

Cheers,

Dave.
