The next step is to get cp -a out of the picture, in this case you're
benchmarking both the read speed and the write speed (what are you
copying to btw?).

Using tar cf /dev/zero <some_dir> is one way to get a consistent picture
of the read speed.

You can confirm the theory that it is directory order causing problems
by using acp to read the data.
