 I don't have the setup to test the problem anymore, but AFAIR the
 commited patch prevented the panic.
 After the patch it was still impossible to mount the FAT partition,
 but that's probably beyond the scope of this PR to deal with, since
 it's known that msdosfs in FreeBSD is not really perfect.
 So, yes I think this PR can be closed.
