Nun: What makes you think UDMA is a really major step forward? It's relatively straightforward to do, it's just that there's no point doing it if ADFS doesn't have supporting hardware.

Basically, it boils down to changing the way ADFS talks to the memory-mapped registers; and that's quite easy really.

Probably took them one to two day's work, assuming they were familiar with the source code. Someone very familiar with ATA and with the source code could probably do it in a couple of hours.
