When I first read this email, I thought it meant the test was done
on rc1, but reading the article:

To cut to the chase, between the 22nd and 24th of May there
looks to be at least one commit (though perhaps multiple based
upon the different data) within the Linus Torvalds 2.6 Git tree
that are negatively affecting many different server/desktop
benchmarks. We waited nearly a week to see if these regressions
would be organically caught and addressed, but they have not
been at least of the Linux 2.6 Git state as of 2010-05-26.

I'll give the udev fix a try w/the btrfs tests.
