Well there are actually several things going on:
1) konqueror asks koi slave for directory dir
2) kio_file stats every file to find file permissions
3) data is given back to konqueror
4) konqueror stats every file again to find it's mime type
5) konqueror calls access(2) on every file, dunno why atm.

I hacked around 2 and 4 but since there is still a access call to every
file left it's still slow. Any idea, what causes 5)? I'm currently
looking into writing my own kio slave for certain dirs, will see if this
