Yeah, 35Mb per sec is slow for a raid controller, the 3ware mirrored is
about 50Mb/sec, and striped is about 100

With hardware tuning, I am sure we can do better than 35Mb per sec. Also

    WTF ?

    My Laptop does 19 MB/s (reading <10 KB files, reiser4) !

    A recent desktop 7200rpm IDE drive
# hdparm -t /dev/hdc1
 Timing buffered disk reads:  148 MB in  3.02 seconds =  49.01 MB/sec

# ll "DragonBall 001.avi"
-r--r--r-- 1 peufeu users 218M mar 9 20:07 DragonBall 001.avi

# time cat "DragonBall 001.avi" >/dev/null
real    0m4.162s
user    0m0.020s
sys     0m0.510s

(the file was not in the cache)
    => about 52 MB/s (reiser3.6)

    So, you have a problem with your hardware...
