Hi I have a few doubts regarding reading and writing to disk...
When we use fread/fwrite (or read/write) does it automatically use DMA.

Another question is that in kernels 1.3.24 the read for the ext2 file system
is a specific routine ext2_read where as in 1.3.62 onwards it just says
generic_file_read . why this change?? and where is the source for

thanx in advance for your responses
