Now, umssync works with the new file system.  I used sed again, and named
the output files uvfatsync, uvfatsetup, uvfatcntl.

I will most likely be making this into a Debian Package(the source patch and
file utitilities), along with sending it to Linus.

ps:  Where does one send kernel patches?  This is the first one that I have
done and wanted to distribute.
