Perhaps. I used to think that on an idle system the hdparm cached speed
should reflect the RAM's speed, and that's why I found 29 MB/s too
slow, surely the O2's RAM can do better than that.
However in the past few days I ran hdparm -T on my desktop machine and
came up with a cache speed of 6,5 GB/s! My RAM is fast but definitely
not that fast.
If that behaviour is not normal, perhaps we should file a bug with the

Yes, they're pretty consistent results, considering the kernels are
