new notebook, new results:
atapci0: <Intel ICH3 UDMA100 controller>
ad0: 38154MB <WDC WD400VE-75HDT0/09.07D09> [77520/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA100
anything above vfs.read_max=1 produce sometimes very annoying little
image glitch/freeze (synchronized with hdd led) when playing movies...
(with AAC disk is now silent:)
