just compiled it on top of 2.6.37 without the fb1e753 and ran seeker [1]
for 100 seconds:

raw disk:       0.2173ms
fb1e753 patch:  0.2643ms
your patch:	0.2676ms

Throughput is within 5% of max, even with the 10ms access time.

Anyone got an idea for a good testcase? I tried replicating the issues

also didn't work.
