will fit in memory there's not much buffer bontention. A 3GB DVD image
on 256MB shows good benefit from writing with O_DIRECT.

Did you do the test on a machine with limited memory? I may have asked

I did try it recently with creating a SchilliX ISO image (~ 20000 files
700 MB) and it did not help.
I don't know what you call "limited memory".
I used a Dual Opteron with 1 GB of RAM so this may be called a machine with
