RAID 0 minixfs?
Now, say I've got two disks that are exactly the same size (which, I
do). Has anyone hacked on MiNT's minixfs to implement RAID 0
("striping") over two or more disks?
I think this would be pretty neat, even if our halt-the-system I/O got
in the way a little.
How would you do it? I think a lot of RAID systems use 8 or more disks
and split the bits apart(!), though they tend to do this in hardware. I
was thinking whole bytes, or maybe even longwords...
Would this actually speed things up at all? Or would the halting I/O
stall things too much?
