Using noatime made no difference.

I'm running it under oprofile to see if something jumps out, but I
doubt that the CPU or HDD differences should account for 20 seconds
vs. 1:30 for basic_tests - something else is going on. And I know
it's not entropy-based as the times are consistent between
/dev/urandom and /dev/random. -- justin
