Hey, this is great stuff. It wish we could have talked about it a bit
before it was commited.. Most of ffs_rawread.c is fairly generic. Do you
think you could make a vfs_direct.c or similar and move the generic bits
in there? It looks like you could keep the ffs specific bits to a minimum
and then leave the rest as helper functions.
Do you have an application that is using this immediately?
