I don't think this is the case.
The tester claims to be using FreeBSD-RC1 which has all the mentioned
debugging options off.
And yes, we should adjust UPDATING in order to remove the (now)
misleading writing about the debugging options.
I think that the most interesting opionion these benchmarks tell is
that we are slow on random, threaded I/O operations. I think we need
to investigate more in this direction.
