2.6.18-1.2189.fc5: Decreased data throughput?



Hi,

In order to use the JMicron controller on my Asus P5B, I decided to
try out 2.6.18-1.2189.fc5 kernel from updates-testing. Prior to this I
was stuck running the 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 kernel due to stability
issues.

For the HDD, I am using the ICH8 sata ports running in AHCI mode. To
test throughput, I ran the following command:

$ dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/dummy bs=100k count=10

With the 2054 kernel, I see a throughput of around 500 MB/s. With the
2189, that value is almost half at around 230 MB/s.

I've checked the output of dmesg for both kernels, and apart from the
ahci version and the failure to probe the JMicron controller on 2054,
they are nearly identical:
