interesting. but I'd be surprised if any of this was due to the distro,
rather than the kernel. I normally prefer to run an up-to-date kernel.org
kernel on as many servers as I can, rather than random distro-hacked stuff.
upgrading the rhel server to a kernel.org kernel would be minimal work,

device that's also being used by the FS in question is no different
from leaving the journal embedded. journaling to a device with no
competing activity appears to be a major win...
