For reference, my N2100 (which I would expect to be slower because it's
still running etch and arm rather than armel) scores:

 Timing cached reads:    60 MB in  2.01 seconds =  29.90 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:   42 MB in  3.10 seconds =  13.56 MB/sec

I'm surprised the second one is the same as yours.  Kernel is:

Linux thecus 2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-iop32x #1 Mon Jul 27 08:26:00 BST 2009
