Got it thanks, you can certainly feel the difference :-)
my previous wget now gets an "expected" 11.1MB/s and eats about 25% CPU
(which feels a bit on the high side)
One weird note though, I accidentally installed the 1806 uniprocessor
i686 kernel, and when it booted it didn't see the SATA drives
ata1 is slow to respond, please be patient
ata1 failed to respond (30 secs)
scsi0 : ahci

it happened twice so no fluke.
I suppose the subsequent panic is justified given that it didn't see the
disks, but why would it not see them? I rebooted back to 1805 smp i686
kernel, installed 1806 smp i686 kernel and now all is well, I can double
check the uniprocessor result if required ...
puzzling. does the UP initrd have the sata modules in it?
If you remove and reinstall the UP kernel, is it repeatably broken?
