can you please try the same test with a non-Debian distro to find out
if this is kernel related?
I.e. the AlpineLinux dom0 ISO might be a very easy solution - although
I've not used it in a SAN yet.
Otherwise try Fedora16.

If you can pin-point this as an issue in your dom0, then I think you
should take it to -devel since you're only seeing it in (less CPU
intensive) reads, which is *quite* odd.


the purpose of libvirt is to provide an abstraction layer hiding all
xen features added since 2006 until they were finally understood and
copied by the kvm devs.
