Another problem is performance wrt. disc access. Hurd feels slow, and my
hdd is rattling all the time when I do something in Hurd. top always
reports ext2fs as main cpu user and often gives ext2fs cpu usage at up
to 50%, even for tasks that tend to be CPU bound when run on the host
system (e.g. compiling something, ext2fs is at the top, and the compiler
itself is further down the list as is make).
