The sanest way to use flash chips is not to pretend that they're a block device at all; rather to use a file system directly on top of them. But although you _talk_ about block devices, your code does look like it should be usable even by flash file systems. I'll try to come up with a test case using it on flash. -- dwmw2 - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-fsdevel" in the body of a message to email@example.com More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
