I am preparing now two kernels against Linux v3.8-rc3 (as your
patchset applies cleany) with 2 important patches which I need here
(1. mei: no proper reboot and 2. (S)ATA fix).

I will attach two tarballs for each kernel-setup and run LTP "lite"
again (tarballs will include the results).

Hmm, regressions is always good to test.
As a "customer" aka tester I want to see any benefit means for most
power-users: Do I get some speedups?
That's the main background of my askings.

As said here I am running Ubuntu as a WUBI-installation.
This system is predestinated for testing loop improvements.
So again and no sorry: How can I test reliable speed improvements?
I remember linux-fs/linux-xfs folks have a tool could be named
"xfstests" (note2myself: more coffee!).
Any hints for testing appreciated!
