+ These functions provide a roughly POSIX-compatible file IO API.
+
+ Since the fat32 driver only manages sectors, we maintain a one-sector
+ cache for each open file. This way we can provide byte access without
+ having to re-read the sector each time.
+ The penalty is the RAM used for the cache and slightly more complex code.
