I think that about a year or so ago the linux kernel finally started
making ext4 obey barriers and / or fsync properly, and the performance
fell back into line with other file systems that also obeyed fsync.
Combined with a rather histrionic report from phoronix many people
were led to believe that ext4 suddenly became very slow when it fact
it just stopped being artificially fast.
Just a guess tho.
