ext2: Cache line aligned partial sector bounce buffer
Currently, if a device read request is done that does not begin or end on a sector boundary a stack allocated bounce buffer is used to perform the read, and then just the part of the sector that is needed is copied into the users buffer. This stack allocation can mean that the bounce buffer will not be aligned to the dcache line size. This is a problem when caches are enabled because unaligned cache invalidates are not safe. This patch uses ALLOC_CACHE_ALIGN_BUFFER to create a stack allocated cache line size aligned bounce buffer.
