I know nothing about DMA but was under the impression
that 2.6.N had low latency and realtime work being
done on it. Is the DMA needed for firewire drives or
is it used all over the place?

By realtime you mean the capability to prioritize
tasks, right? I recall comments to the affect of
Ingo's patches performing comparibly with true
realtime systems.
