Follow up ... here are the drives using the stock non-xen kernel ... I have
some dmesg to weed through and figure out what driver I need.

# hdparm -tT /dev/hda

 Timing cached reads:   1396 MB in  2.00 seconds = 697.06 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  142 MB in  3.02 seconds =  47.03 MB/sec
[root@localhost ~]# hdparm -tT /dev/hdb

 Timing cached reads:   1448 MB in  2.00 seconds = 722.66 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  136 MB in  3.01 seconds =  45.13 MB/sec
