With a 6.0_STABLE from early november on a sata disk dd'ing 1G:

On the dom-0:
to a file on ffs: 93M/s.
to a raw partition: 96M/s.

On the dom-u:
to a file on ffs: 28M/s.
to raw partition: 97M/s.

When writing to the dom-0's file system I get 64k / transfer, for
the dom-u it's only 32k.

kind regards
