Follow-up Comment #1, bug #17321 (project grub):

New version of the patch.

Improved file read on MINIX 2 filesystem:
  Added the cache on fs meta data (inode, direntry, map) removed during Minix
v1 to Minix v2 conversion.
This cache is handled in minix_rdfsb() function.
minix_rdfsb() return now a pointer to the block cache buffer allocated for
the block.

Calling function must specify which cache zone to use between :


For each zone, only one block is allocated in FSYS_BUF (dealing the cache
locality, priority is simpler: no need to define a cache strategy).
Each level of indirection is stored in it's own cache zone. The final map
table is always store in zone MAP0.
