   (I'm having some mail problems... I hope this mail wasn't send to
   bug-hurd more often... if that happened, please forgive me.)

           * node-create.c: New file. This file was copied from libdiskfs and
           changed for fatfs because in fatfs. For fatfs "." and ".." must be
           created after the directory was created.

Please make that a bit shorter.  "New file." is enough for this kind
of an entry.

Just esthetics here, but it is always nice to have the local headers
after the system wide ones.

Follow the GCS!

Update the comment to reflect that this version of diskfs_create_node
has to `.' and `..' after the directory has been created.  Remeber,
its the comment that describes the code, not the other way around!

As for general code comments, thats beyond my brain capacity for
