    Sure but the filesystems in fs/ are general purpose and they can be
    mounted on top of any block device (except for the in-memory ones like
    sysfs). Furthermore, the problem with iriverfs is that it assumes that
    there can be only one device plugged to the host. What we want is
    something like

    $ mount -t iriverfs /dev/iriver0 /mnt/media

    Which can be accomplished with an USB driver in driver/usb/ that
    registers the special iriverfs.

    Pekka
