   UMSDOS is a hideous system.  I'm currently working on code which will
   allow Linux to drop support for it altogether.  Basically, it's far
   superior to use a file on an MS-DOS filesystem as a device on which you
   create an ext2 filesystem.  Hopefully I can sneak this code in under
   the 2.1 codefreeze (since UMSDOS has major problems in the development
   kernels) but I've been far too busy recently.

Well, the Hurd version will just present a fairly vanilla look at the
DOS filesystem, and not try and make all the Unix semantics appear.
Perhaps that's called something different in Linux; I'm probably
confusing two different things here.
