Could this accelerate
tar -xf linux-2.6.26.tar.gz

A student in the Linux Performance Tuning course I hold this week compared
this with ext3, even with the improved mkfs.xfs options (but without
lazy-count=1, cause mkfs.xfs from Debian Etch is too old) and even with
noop as IO scheduler. AFAIR XFS took roughly 3-4 times as long as Ext3, I
did not note the exact numbers. This was with 2.6.25. I can repeat the
test locally with 126.96.36.199 if wanted.
