        Architecture: amd64
        Machine: amd64
        I've got two amd64 machines here.

        A single CPU Opteron with 1GB of RAM and system disk is a
        Fujitsu MHT2080BH on a svwsata.  That machine can write a crash
        dump at ~12MB/sec.

        Another machine is an 8 CPU Intel machine with 16GB of RAM and
        the system disk is a Seagate ST3500630NS on an ahcisata.  This
        machine can only write a crash dump out at about 200kB/sec.
        Each new number ticking down takes around 5 seconds to appears.
        Relevent parts of dmesg for the disk are:

          ahcisata0 at pci0 dev 31 function 2: vendor 0x8086 product 0x2681
          ahcisata0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 19
          ahcisata0: AHCI revision 1.1, 6 ports, 32 command slots, features 
          atabus1 at ahcisata0 channel 0
          ahcisata0 port 0: device present, speed: 1.5Gb/s
          wd0 at atabus1 drive 0: <ST3500630NS>
          wd0: quirks 2<FORCE_LBA48>
          wd0: 465 GB, 969021 cyl, 16 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 976773168 

        Boot to single user and "reboot -d".

        None given.
