Please help with Simon's Cyrus RPMS (2.2.8), SMP, and really slow performance

Today, we upgraded the machine to the latest redhat ES 3.0
with kernel Linux 2.4.21-15.ELsmp -- no luck... imtest -z still took 19
seconds to run...  compared to 2-3 seconds on the cheapie machine.

I generated the traces requested, but I'm not really sure what I'm looking
for... Mostly because I don't have any idea what to compare it to...

It generates a ton of output, so instead of putting them in this message,
or attaching them, here are the urls

If anyone has time, I'd appreciate any pointers in the right direction...
