Not to be negative, but I've also had the same experience. USB+msdos/vfat
== crashes & fs-lockouts. ie.. Either the storage locks up or the machine
does. I've also noticed that USB+msdos_fs is orders of magnitude slower
than ffs/lfs/ext2 on the same unit. I know it's an ineffecient FS, but not
Go searching the PR database some and have some fun. You'll find many
"analyzed" PRs, steps on what to do, or just people asking how to debug
this further and being ignored.
I can _always_ reproduce the system lockup by writing files to a USB
floppy drive formatted with FAT. The FS lockouts I can usually produce
with a SanDisk USB 1Gb stick with FAT32. I'd be happy to help if someone
is willing to look at the data it'd produce from ddb or whatever you want
to see. It would be wonderful to have this fixed since so many consumer
electronics devices use FAT.
