Is MSDOSFS ready for prime-time yet?  I'm running into problems with
it hanging the system (no panic, just Big Red Switch time) when I try
to write to a DOS partition (added to the disklabel and mounted from
/etc/fstab).  It only happens some of the time.  I'm running 7/13
binaries with a kernel created from 7/23 tarball sources.  It doesn't
screw up the MSDOS file system (at least as far as CHKDSK can tell); a
0-length entry for the file written from NetBSD is left behind in the
directory, though.  The MSDOS file system was created by MSDOS 6.0.
If anyone wants more details, please ask.

Also, mount_msdos doesn't understand the -o flag, which means that I
can't use mount -u on my DOS partition.
