Will be creating another patch to revert changes concerning readahead
in fcntl.h that Ken ran into with hdparm... give me a few hours.
( Though I reckon that just maybe the hdparm maintainer may have to
consider using glibc's supplied one in future... )

The question there is really patch which one, glibc or hdparm...
glibc for the moment...

It won't be golden until it gets rigorous testing... that needs
bodies in front of keyboards...

Honestly, most issues appear to be non-x86, so you should generally
be OK, patch applies against head, but I'm using 20040210-2200.

Give me a bit to get the interim patch out...
