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

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