Yes, i have carried these tests multiple time and the results are pretty
consistent upto 0.1MBPS.

Before each test, I freshly recreated the filesystem to remove any trace of
the previous tests. Moreover, I have mounted/unmounted the device to purge
any data in the cache.

No, currently i havn't experimented with different sd cards. True, it would
be interesting to figure out the interaction of the driver with different
flash implementations. I'll perform these tests ASAP.
