Could this be due to an outdated version of u-boot? I haven't had
to get Fedora on my BBB yet, so I don't know what version of u-boot is
used/recommended in the image but I recall hearing about this in the
OpenBSD mailing list:
"The last version of u-boot includes some important changes for the users
of BBB. With this version, the BBB runs at 1Ghz (now is running at
550mhz) when the board is connected to the power connector. The code was
developed by various developers of TI, so it's safe."
Hmm... I also ran dhrystone and the speed in Fedora is 0.564 times the
speed in Debian, pretty close to the 550/1000 ratio.
Tomorrow I'll also see if using a standard power supply makes any
difference (I now use a mini-USB charger for all tests).
