Ok, here are the read results with --direct=1 for reads. In previous posting,
writes were already direct.

test1 statistics: time=8 16 20796 sectors=8 16 1049648
test2 statistics: time=8 16 10551 sectors=8 16 581160


Not sure why reads are so slow with --direct=1? In the previous test
(no direct IO), I had cleared the caches using
(echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches) so reads could not have come from page
cache?

Thanks
Vivek
