Using the new kernel, there is indeed a difference because the time to
copy a file is 1800 seconds with [mq-deadline], and 340 seconds with
[none]. But that is still far away from the old kernel, which performs
the copy of the same file in 76 seconds.

Side notes:

- The numbers above are average values calculated on 100 trials for
each different situation. As previously noticed on this thread, with
the new kernel the times are also very different among the different
trials in the same situation. With the old kernel the standard
deviation on the times in a set of 100 trials is much smaller (to give
some mean/sigma values: m=1800->s=530; m=340->s=131; m=76->s=13; ).

- The size of the transferred file has been 1GB in these trials.
Smaller files don't always give appreciable differences, but if you
want I can also provide those data. Of course, I can also provide the
raw data of each set of trials.

and bye,
