Oh nice!

It would be exciting to hear if the students have found a certain class of
situations (file data access rate vs bandwidth vs cache size vs average
file length and similar) and corresponding algorithms where prefetching
would be consistently superior?

I am pessimistic but it is only the actual tests and measurements who can show
the answer.
