did no measuring but it is fine for playing audio from shared drive over 
wi-fi. There were some troubles with cifs in kernel in IT2005. 
It required patching for ARM cpus and audio and video player stuttered 
when playing audio from cifs mounted drive. Now in IT2006 it works fine. 
Either cifs module improved speed/increased readahead in 2.6.16 or media 
players in IT2006 now do a bit more caching on local filesystem.
