    A few weeks ago (just before 2.0.31 ;-), I reported a bug in the vfat
    filesystem: if you use rename(2) to change filenames from upper to
    lower case, you'll end up with a severely screwed up filesystem with
    cross-linked clusters. Shouldn't this problem be addressed in 2.0.32
    as well? (Unfortunately, the article containing a short patch, which
    made rename(2) return an errror in such cases, has alrady expired from
    my linux-kernel archive.)
