I'm aware of a performance regression in a 'very special' case when
ramdisks or files on tmpfs are being used as storage, I post my results
a while ago:
I'm not sure if that 'special' case requires investigation and/or should
prevent us from doing stable backport but it would be nice if someone
tries to reproduce it at least.

I'm going to make a bunch of tests with FusionIO drives and sequential
read to replicate same test Felipe did, I'll report as soon as I have
data (beginning of next week hopefuly).
