A little kernel hacking, enabling me to mmount my JB1 camera. This is a patch against the 2.6.7 kernel source, under fs/fat/.

I tried to sys it using dosemu and freedos, but no joy so far. DOS area: sector not found. Too bad, it might make a great little recovery "floppy" if I can get this to work. Of course there are a million other ways to go about it too. It's probably got room for Linux plus freedos plus dosemu, for example.
