Subject: using the IDE disk cache

using the IDE disk cache

does rockbox use the 2M or 8M cache of the disk? AFAIK one can set a
readahead so that data is buffered in the cache. This would help a lot in
terms of saving power, like the 8M cache mod.

I can't find anything like that in the source code (ata.c, methinks).

In the long run, every program becomes rococo, and then rubble.
