Use UFS2(possibly UFS) as the backend of share instead of Fat32"
The "Fix" in this bug report is not acceptable. Sometimes UFS is not an
option. FAT32 is a cross-platform file system. UFS is not.
Furthermore such a bug should not be in a -stable branch, unless the end
user is warned somehow when trying to use it. Do you picture microsoft
shipping out Windows XP with a file corruption bug in FAT32 and telling
people (after they experience the problem and data loss, not ahead of time)
that their fix is to use NTFS?
