I didn't find a reasonable place to insert it in the wiki so
I parked it here for now.

This is a hack that just reads a disk as fast as it can.
It was very "good" at tickling the lost-interrupt problem
on an old RH system which was not using DMA on the disks.


These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
