OK, I have another kernel problem which I have reported to both the Red Hat 
bugzilla and the kernel bugzilla ... 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=122687 and 
http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2670

The problem is that I have getting extremely poor performance on a SATA drive 
with the 2.6 kernel (a bit over 3 MB/sec) as compared to the 2.4 kernel 
(approximately 55 MB/sec).

I am not a kernel hacker so I am not attempting to look at the kernel code 
myself.  I also do not expect Red Hat folks to work on this directly ... the 
firewire support is certainly more important for more users.

So, who do I gripe to to about this?  I do not look forward to posting the 
problem to the kernel mailing list since I would then need to monitor that 
mailing list and, while signal to noise on the list is very good, the volume 
is a killer.

Suggestions welcome.
