Bug Description

Amazon has prepared a patch for blkfront which increases the performance of EBS volumes. In their testing, applying this patch to EC2 instances which use EBS volumes significantly increases the performance of EBS volumes. Amazon would like to have it included in the Ubuntu AMI's and made available to users of Ubuntu.
