SubjectRe: 2.5.5-pre1: mounting NTFS partitions -t VFAT
Hi Ogawa,

Your patch seems to fix it more or less, not the way it should be
fixed, imho. Partitions other than FAT return bogus information, but
bogus is not always zero. Fortunately enough, one of those new if
statements returns an error, but this is a "works for me"
solution, not a decent one.

What lacks is a fingerprint detector, and iirc -long time ago- FAT has a
very easy to detect fingerprint.

I'll dig into FAT documentation tonight.
