Yeah, except it looks like that patch will generate trashed short names. I
did fix my patch (I had to add stuff in fs/vfat/namei.c to translate the
long name in Unicode for into little-endian, and to allow "proper"
comparisons and conversions of its wide-char form so that the short name
will be generated correctly. The corrected patch is attached.

/me procceds to put a paper bag over his head and sit in the corner. :)
