does any one already tryed SATA kernel support on MX6 board with Linux O.S. ?

I'm using a Nitrogen6X, and also a custom sabre-lite with different kernel options.With both cards I have sata disk recognized and working, but after 2 minutes performance degrades rapidly.

I'm quite sure it is not a standby, or low power related problem (I've disabled it).


At start up performance are good:

root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:~# hdparm -t /dev/sda

    Timing buffered disk reads: 188 MB in  3.01 seconds =  62.51 MB/sec
root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:~# uptime
    ..... up 1 min,  ....


But after a while became worst:

root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:~# hdparm -t /dev/sda
 Timing buffered disk reads:  88 MB in  3.03 seconds =  29.00 MB/sec
root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:~# uptime
    ..... up 3 min,  ....


Can some one else repeat the same test ? It is not destructive.


Thanks in advance
