QEMU can -- on the fly -- create a virtual fat block device based on a
directory hierarchy on the host system.  (For example: ``-hdc

The Hurd's fatfs translator, however, can't cope with that block device.  It
may be that it's simply too strict when checking the device for validity; it
might also be that QEMU's emulation is not completely done according to the

As GNU GRUB and other operating systems (I guess) are able to handle these
block device, I suppose that it's a (probably minor) issue in our fatfs
