No More "Oldies"! (Miscellaneous)

posted by Jack R. Ellis E-mail, 29.10.2007, 17:48

A minor miracle -- The "links" pages for this website no longer has entries
for the obsolete UDMA/UDMA2, XDMA/XCDROM or QHIMEM/QDMA/QCDROM drivers, and
only a "link" to the current XMGR and UIDE drivers is shown!

Now, only the "underlining" through my name for SHSUCDX needs to be removed
as SHCDX33C has always been under continuous support by Johnson Lam and me.

XMGR and SHCDX33C are essentially done. No plan now, to give UIDE delayed
"Write Back" output (MANY more DOS "hooks" needed!), nor to put its binary-
search table in XMS (likely too slow, and few desire over a 255-MB cache!).
Better if UIDE "hooks" only Int 13h and thus remains "generic" and FAST!

So, UIDE is essentially done as well. When "future interfaces" like ADMA/
AHCI become more available on mainboards, they can then be added into UIDE.
Such changes are MUCH easier, as they now go in only ONE integrated driver.
