Thanks for setting me right.
Anyway, I did a test with the 2.6.18-93.el5.bz444759 kernel and there's
no difference: 65 minutes, 27 MB/s. Looks like it doesn't matter which
kernel I use, at least for this simple test with dd.
I wonder if a test closer to real life, such as reading/writing stuff
from/to MySQL, would produce different results. I guess there's only one
way to find out. ;-)
