here is attached a much better patch to
use direct access to files (access that don't polute the cache,
and use direct memory access).
The direct access is controlled by the user through an
input option (file_direct_access), and tolerates filesystems
that don't provide direct access (by automatic deactivation).
It is a patch against current cvs xine-lib (as of 2002/02/27).
It modifies input_files.c, and add a HAVE_O_DIRECT flag
If you're interested in it, feel free to test and to give us feedback.
If you think this is valuable, we propose to become xine developpers
to maintain it.
Cheers, Thomas Herault, Frederic Magniette.
