Reading about non-mp3 file access, I wonder if there is some kind of
mecanism on Rockbox that would make sure are done synchronously with
mp3 related hard drive accesses. Would'nt that help reduce energy
consumption ?
I guess that when a mp3 is playing, most file accesses could be
suspended until the next hard drive access by the mp3 player. Has this
already been done ?
