Subject: [PATCH] fat: Expand a slightly out-of-date comment
Date: Fri, 28 Sep 2018 14:49:47 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

The file namei.c seems to have been renamed to namei_msdos.c, so I
decided to update the comment with the correct name, and expand it a bit
to tell the reader what to look for.
