    Mel, I had a look into this and it's actually very likely only a
    configuration issue. In 3.1 ext3 started to default to enabled barriers
    (barrier=1 in mount options) which is a safer but slower choice. When I set
    barriers explicitely, I see no performance difference for dbench4 between
    3.0 and 3.1.
