Speaking of diskinfo, I can understand why it cannot measure seek
times on too-small a disk, but why cannot it measure transfer rates?

On my 256M compact flash (Soekris), I get:

anyanka# diskinfo -v -t ad1
        512             # sectorsize
        257949696       # mediasize in bytes (246M)
        503808          # mediasize in sectors
        984             # Cylinders according to firmware.
        16              # Heads according to firmware.
        32              # Sectors according to firmware.

Seek times:
        Full stroke:    diskinfo: read error or disk too small for test.: Input/output error
