Block devices with other that 512 byte/block
Tue, 20 Jul 1999 09:39:42 +0200
some time ago, I remind to have heard rumours, that future versions of the
Linux generic block device driver will support block devices with
than 512 bytes per block/hardsector. In the 2.2.10 Kernel I still see the
">>9" operands, which indicate to me, that this one does not support larger
For a rather untypical disk device attached to a processor, not currently
supported by the official Linux source, this feature would be very helpful.
Is there some progress in this work, or has it been dropped, because
nearly all modern hardware is based on 512 byte SCSI/IDE disks?
Does anybody know anyone, who has been working on it?
