This is now in Justin Gibbs hand but will take time to move on. Doug confirmed
his current code is now merged too.

Folks have done most of the common drivers. So its not really a show stopper
now just a 'clean up'

SCSI M/O has the same problem. 2.2 can mount MSDOS fs on M/O 2.4test 10 cant.

This is the same as the SCSI cd rom issue. You can either do reblocking in the
fat layer and other fs's needing it or do it in the scsi code.

Turns out to be safe according to Jeff and ANK

The pci_socket crash is fixed it seems
