Please don't forget to include a chapter where users may append their
performance results done by bonnie++. They should include their setup:
Mainboard, Controller, RAM, CPU(s), HDs, filesystem used, command used,
kernel version, driver version, firmware version.

To make results comparable we could even propose a certain bonnie++ command.

Why include such stats?
Users could search their similar hw setup and compare their statistics
with the one's from the wiki, so they know if tuning helped them or not.
