While not IO related, Oden mentioned on IRC something that might be
interesting regarding md5/sha1 sum calculations:

<oden> cool. is there some sha1 generation done there?
<oden> or md5 sums?
<oden> if so, sysadmin should benchmark coreutils tools vs. md5sha1sum i
added. notably faster with md5sha1sum

I don't know the process, but if there is a lot of such stuff going on,
it may help speed things up CPU wise.
