I already have a good idea what the results will look like for usb, so
just the other four with sd-card.
I tested 126.96.36.199 with and without the DMA API patch set, and with and
without the nosmp cmdline option.
The good news: the DMA API patch set does not seem to be responsible for
the slow-down in SD card performance, it was equally slow with all
188.8.131.52 variants. The bad news: some other change between 2.6.35 and
2.6.40 must be responsible, so there's a lot of bisecting to do.
