    Which turns out not to actually be what they're using; what I have
    source for is "2.4.18_mvl30-E3" whereas my E3 has
    "2.4.18_mvl30-ams-delta". Also there's no sign of a dfdblk/MFS-DFD
    driver in the provided source, but the dmesg output of the E3 clearly
    shows such a driver initialising before any filesystem is mounted,
    ruling out the possiblity of it being a module.

    I contacted Amstrad about this over a week ago, but to date haven't had
    a response.
