The buffer wouldnt be hard to implement, but pointless... The way its
done now it means that not extra buffer is needed, and we can do more
than just a simple write to a sector/file/whatever when needed.. With
a buffer, only 1 (or a few) writes could be queued and there would be
a articifial limit on the amount of data that could be dumped
