  2.6.0: vvfat driver generates bad FAT entries

Status in QEMU:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The vvfat driver sometimes generates entries about which file system
  checking utilities generate complaints.

  For example, dosfsck will complain that the volume label entry has
  non-zero size. ScanDisk from Windows 9x complains about invalid dot
  (".") and dot-dot ("..") entries in directories and also about invalid
  long file name entries. MS-DOS ScanDisk also often manages to find
  "lost clusters" on the drive.

  Tangentially: qemu-img convert fat:test test.img doesn't seem to work
  -- it generates an 504MiB of zero bytes and hangs. qemu-img map
  fat:test generates an assertion failure. Having qemu-img working might
  have helped with debugging the above issue.
