Hardware RO & delays [DOC2000]

Two questions this time:

1.  Is there a way to tell the flash (DoC2000) to mark a certain part 
of it as read only?  I know I can mount a certain partition as read 
only, but can I protect it at a lower level?

2.  Does the driver block the system?  I'm experience delays in 
sending udp packets over ethernet for periods of 50-300 
miliseconds.  I have a function that is supposed to send every 
several miliseconds a packets, and when going over the logs, I 
once in a while see a packet that is delayed for several tens of 
miliseconds, which is not acceptable by me.  Any ideas?

David, does the driver block the system?
