Why kernel.org is slow

To proove that readdir is bad thing on large number of items in a directory.

Well, EXT4 has fixed some issues (http://ext2.sourceforge.net/2005-ols/paper-html/node3.html) But what about locking in linux kernel (vfs and ext4) code?

Also, some conservative linuxes still use ext3.
