All,

I was just reading the kernel newbies page about the new features in
2.6.19: http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_2_6_19

And saw:
==
FAT: Add "-o flush" mount option for fat for removable media devices
(USB flash-based memory devices, MP3 players). Mounting with -o flush
tells FAT to write things to disk as quickly as possible. It is like
-o sync, but much faster (and not as safe). Think of it like a fast
"async" mount (commit)
==

Does anyone know if this is in the SUSE 10.2 kernel?

And if so, if the SUSE automount logic is using this flag instead of
-o sync like 10.1 does?


This feature, while nice, will not go to openSUSE 10.2, because it is
feature-frozen, and release is near.

It may get included in 10.3 however.
