[Mono-list] FileStream performance under Windows

Unlike MS.NET, Mono does not pass arbitrary FileOptions values
to the operating system.

Maybe you should rephrase your question. What makes you think
that Mono's FileStream is less performant than MS.NET, and why
do you believe that disabling the read-ahead cache would
speed things up?

On the other side, Mono's XmlReader is slightly less performant
that MS.NET. You can't speed it up by applying some magic
file system flags.
