A question about FAT, FTL and MTD

	The FTL related documentation I've read talks about a FAT interface to
flash chips but I'm confused because I didn't found any statement about
FAT is part of the FTL standard or not and because I didn't found a
reference to FAT in the MTD code/docs.

	Can anybody confirm me if FAT is part of the FTL standard? If yes, how
is it supposed to be used with MTD?

	If not, what can be needed to do that? As we have a flash NAND memory
on board, maybe it'd need a nftl driver similar to the DOC one. Correct
me if I'm wrong.

	I understood that JFFS2 is a better tuned option for FS than FAT, but
we had a legacy FAT system and it could be useful to maintain the DOS
media compatibility if possible, and we want to be sure what  design
options we have.

	Again, thanks for your time :-)
