Great! I'll give the FDT a try next.

The bonnie++ results were mixed. Sequential reads showed a bit of a
boost, but writes and random seeks took a huge hit. I published the
numbers on my blog:
These numbers are for SD card in an mmc slot, right? I wouldn't expect
the patch to the USB EHCI driver to have any effect on SD card speed.
The big write performance hits are worrisome, though. I'd be good to
test on one kernel version with and without the patch just to make sure.
Also comparing SD performance with and without nosmp passed on cmdline
would be interesting.
