Not a boost but a slight decrease in speed (tested on 2 or 3 computers).
AFAIK the idea is to enable interrupts while doing IDE transfers to enable
serial cards etc get their interrupts through. I needed this on one computer
to use all 5 serial ports without much overruns and underruns. But this
decreases IDE throughput.
