Now that you say that, I find that it might be some scheduling problem
and not the radeonfb:

When I start find /home for the first time it scrolls slowly. When I do
it a second time it is still slow. But when I did it a third time it is
superb fast (only 45sec vs some minutes / approx the same in xterm)...

When I do it now it seems to accelerate... it starts slow but becomes
much faster...

Does that sound like being caused by the anticipated scheduler ?
What I don't understand is why the cpu is at 100% while it was not with

ah, ok.
