    Works like a charm, only one comment:

    Mounting my vfat partitions gave me this error:

    FAT: codepage or iocharset option didn't specified
    File name can not access proper (mounted as read-only)

    which was easily fixed by supplying a iocharset= mount option. But according
    to the man page of mount:

    Character set to use for converting between 8 bit characters and
    16 bit Unicode characters. The default is iso8859-1. Long file-
    names are stored on disk in Unicode format.

    the default is iso8859-1. Has this default gone haywire somewhere?

    Thanks anyway for another great kernel :)
