Re: Fixing lags/freezes with SSD in iriver H320 (updates)
I managed to fix the most prevalent issues with the changeset:
However, I just observed a panic which may be related to the oddity I
pointed out in my previous mail:

I got a *PANIC* with flush_fat_sector() - Could not write sector 40883
(error -5) in the middle of playback, which indicates that a read/write
I am currently waiting for a build to see whether a larger
READWRITE_TIMEOUT helps here. If so, I would suggest to change the code
to wait a shorter time in the first run and to wait only on the second
run the full 30 seconds after a transfer has been started. This would
mitigiate possible lags. However, I'm not deep enough in the ATA matter
to see whether that actually makes sense.
Can someone give me a hint here?
