comment Disable linux read and write file cache on partition
This seems to be the closet i could get. I'm now using O_DIRECT to copy from P2 card to the HDD and then again from P2 card to md5sum for checking. This removes the useless half of the cache so the only things that are cached video files on the HDD.

comment Disable linux read and write file cache on partition
The files are written/read with various 3rd party applications... mv, md5sum, samba and the like. I maybe able to replace some of these with my own C app in the future... but as far as i can tell samba dosnt have a O_DIRECT option.

Does the raw command bind the divice in a way i can mount my xfs partition to /video for use with samba? The documentation and google results seem to be a bit vague.
