This is something I wondered about (with eCos-Linux filesystem compatibility
in mind), but haven't had the time to give much thought to. Your proposal
seems reasonable to me; I agree that it ought to generally default off so as
not to break the existing behaviour. Perhaps, if we foresaw certain boards
as likely to need this option, we might require it in their platform HAL?
