See Bruce Evans contribution:
"msdosfs is now only slightly slower than ffs with soft updates for
writing and slightly faster for reading when both use their best block
sizes. Writing is slower for msdosfs because of more sync writes.
Reading is faster for msdosfs because indirect blocks interfere with
clustering in ffs."
