This bug could be closed.

The performance regression is triggered by commit 1cf6e7d83bf3(mm:
task dirty accounting fix). Which has been reverted in 2.6.29.

For 2.6.30, commit 1cf6e7d83bf33(mm: task dirty accounting fix) and
1b5e62b42b55(writeback: double the dirty thresholds) were just merged
together. The latter one restores the iozone performance. (However
might deteriorate some writeback slowness bugs..)

Thanks,
Fengguang
