comment Ext2 block structure: size of reserved GDT Blocks
It looks like this program is simply buggy. How large of a filesystem is this?

comment Where is filename stored on a filesystem?
@LưuVĩnhPhúc, ntfs does.. it just calls it an MFT record, but it's pretty much an inode.

comment Bash, how to let some background processes run but wait for others?
@mikeserv, what are you talking about? That's the point: it waits for all of the children in that subshell.

comment Why do I need initramfs ?
@mikeserv, the pedantic semantic argument you are making is that an initramfs that is built in, empty, and unused is not the same thing as no initramfs. In the strictest technical interpretation that may be true, but practically, that's what people mean when they say no initramfs. To put it another way, if you can not tell ( just by using the kernel rather than reading the source code ) the difference between truly having no initramfs, and what really happens, then it is as if you have no initramfs.

comment Why do I need initramfs ?
@mikeserv, no, /root is the home directory for the root user. The rootfs is /, which then has the real root mounted over top of it. You are just arguing semantics. For the purposes of this discussion, not having an initramfs means not having a file on the disk your boot loader has to load and pass to the kernel.

comment Why do I need initramfs ?
@mikeserv, again, for all intents and purposes, an unused automatic empty built in initramfs is equivalent to not having one.

@mikeserv, your comment is useless. If you are going to claim that, you need to explain why.

@mikeserv, obviously a built in but empty/unused initramfs does not count.

comment How does Linux md-RAID handle disk read errors?
@Totor, md behaves exactly the same way whether it acknowledged an uncorrectable error, or timed out.

comment Use some EFI loader to boot MBR
refind can chain load grub-efi, not the bios grub.

@MichaelShigorin, they can't chain load bios boot loaders.

comment Zero graphic card fan speed when no calculations are performed
Then what is strange about it? If it isn't in use, it powers down, doesn't generate heat, and so doesn't need the fan.

comment In makefile when do we use .o files?
Wow, that is an impressive wall of text for something that could have just said "so you don't have to recompile everything when you change only one file" ;)

comment What is the relationship between root and kernel?
Question is too vague / unclear to be answerable.
