SubjectRe: [Q] How can I transfer data from hard disk to PCI device'smemory
Date
Not to PCI device's register, but to PCI device's SDRAM memory.

In detail after I modify kernel, I want to transfer data

from HDD controller's data register (IDE controller case)

to another PCI's SDRAM memory with the help of kernel

( I think Direct I/O(using O_DIRECT flag) )

Is this impossible?
