My laptop setup is:
- kernel 2.6.32-5 (Squeeze...)
- RAID1 (replacing my thinkpad DVD ultrabay by a 2nd HDD)
- dm-crypt
- ext3

Yes, both the VB images and FF profile are on the same partition,
as I want both to be encrypted. Writing to my disk is normally quite
fast, but I've noticed indeed that when it's VB that does it, it's slow.
If I don't find a way, I guess I'll switch back to Xen with NAT...

Why would this change?

Please enable the CONFIG_LATENCYTOP configuration in your kernel.

Is there a kernel module to load? Or is this only available in 3.2?
