I'd be a bit concerned: the board has an on-board cache, and
therefore can upset unix's notions of what order to do disk
writes in.  You might therefore incur a hard-disk inconsistency
unfixable by fsck if the system crashes in between writes.
I'd want to hear that the board had satisfied the driver writer
before I'd be comfortable bringing it up.
