FWIW, starting/stopping a volume that is fast doesn't consistently make 
it slow.  I just tried it again on an older volume... It doesn't make it 
slow.  I also went back and re-ran the test on test3brick and it isn't 
slow any longer.  Maybe there is a time lag after stopping/starting a 
volume before it becomes "fast".

Either way, stopping/starting a "fast" volume only makes it slow for 
some period of time and it doesn't consistently make it slow.  I don't 
think this is the issue.  red-herring.

[root at gfs01bkp /]# gluster volume stop test2brick
Stopping volume will make its data inaccessible. Do you want to 
continue? (y/n) y
[root at gfs01bkp /]# gluster volume start test2brick
volume start: test2brick: success
[root at gfs01bkp /]# mount /test2brick
[root at gfs01bkp /]# cd /test2brick
[root at gfs01bkp test2brick]# time tar -xPf boost_1_57_0.tar; time rm -rf

#... Retest on test3brick after it has been up after a volume restart 
for 20-minutes... Compare this to running the test immediately after a 
restart which gave a time of 3.5-minutes.
