I will repeat the tests after get that setting. Will google for it..

Yeah but 2.4 drops like anything..

I know. I am puzzled too. Probably I didn't put noatime properly in /etc/fstab.
Unfortunately I have only one linux partition. So I prefer to boot rather than
I will redo the bechmarks and post the results..
