time mount <fs bits heres>

'time' is part of BASH so you might need to fiddle which what shell you 
use.  It's good to see the difference between 'real' and 'cpu' time as 
it should give a rough indication how much of that time is spent in IO 

You can slip 'time' infront of any shell command you use for very 
rough'n'ready timings.
