Subject: Re: Linux patch that speeds up fat writing on usb disks
From: Dave Chapman (dave_at_dchapman.com)
Date: 2003-04-23


Björn,

Thank you very much for this - it solves the only problem I had with my
JBR20.

I applied your patch by hand to my 2.4.19 kernel, and it works.

Is there anything we can do to help get this in the main kernel trees?
Or is it just a case of wait and pray?

Best wishes,

Dave.
