Ben,
We still do not have the a P5020 sample to fix the problem.
One workaround is to use the patch ( I think you have noticed the patch):
http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/ppc/sdk/linux.git/commit/?id=92c0ce1e599e788ffc0908739db9bd5e0dbdad69

and use a SSD hard drive.
It will have a usable performance.
Thanks.
Roy
