Disabling write cache by default or with option.



  • Hello all,

    What do you think about adding an option (or even making it default)
    for disabling the write cache on IDE disks. (sysctl hw.ata.wc)
    I think this can be very helpful in case of crashes, and the performance impact
    will probably be negligible for a router/firewall device.

    Regards,
    Niki
