Flash Filesystems

Hello Derick,

I have implemented ATA drivers for the pc386 and 
the mbx8xx BSP. I have tested both with Compact 
Flash cards. They worked rather straight forward, 
and the code is included in the current source 
tree of RTEMS (under lib/libbsp/i386/pc386/ide and 

Implementing a real "Flash File System" on raw 
devices might be a bit more difficult.
