Can anyone familiar with FPC 2.6.4 comment on the specifics of how
BlockWrite() functions under Linux. Specifically does BlockWrite() call the
Linux kernel or call fWrite()?

Normally, it calls the linux kernel.

Does BlockWrite() call fFlush or does it rely on the kernel when to flush
and actually write to the disk?

It relies on the kernel.

In which file can the source code specific to BlockWrite() version 2.6.4 be
found ?

Headers are in rtl/inc/systemh.inc actual routines are in rtl/inc/file.inc
