    The following diff registers 'fat' as an alias for 'msdos' for a
    filesystem type:

    *** fs/msdos/msdosfs_syms.c.orig Thu Nov 28 09:08:11 1996
    --- fs/msdos/msdosfs_syms.c Thu Nov 28 09:20:09 1996

    msdos_read_super, "msdos", 1, NULL
    };

    + /*
    + * Added 'fat' alias for 'msdos' filesystem
    + * jrichard@fix.net (28 Nov 1996)
    + *
    + */
    + struct file_system_type fat_fs_type = {
    + msdos_read_super, "fat", 1, NULL
    + };
    +

    int init_msdos_fs(void)
    {

    if ((status = register_filesystem(&msdos_fs_type)) == 0)
    status = register_symtab(&msdos_syms);
    + /*

    + if ((status = register_filesystem(&fat_fs_type)) == 0)
    + status = register_symtab(&msdos_syms);
    +
    return status;
    }
