    I ran a couple tests, and I didn't see a 4x difference, but
    mtools would usually win. The most dramatic difference I saw
    was on a 45 MB file.

    mtools: 35.66 seconds to write file.
    fat: 87.49 seconds to write file.

    So mtools in this case is 2.5x faster than the kernel fat code.
