Are you saying that i should not expect more?
I expect about 70% better performance, since I think a single disk
should be able to do 100M/s. Maybe this is unreasonable?

I am able to do the remount, but it seems to have had no impact.
I don't know why but I see 3 possibilities:
- Perhaps because su/sw settings don't matter very much.
- maybe it didn't take effect (rebooting this system is not a preferred
- maybe it doesn't matter if the partition layout is not optimized.
