No LFNs in kernel (and still patented until 2017, I think, ugh). But
grab DOSLFN 0.40e here:


I would probably prefer something like StarLFN (TSR), which just (by
default) makes LONGNAME.DAT files with 8.3 -> LFN translation at
runtime. At least then you avoid patents and any "danger"
(cross-links) to your real partition data. But I suspect that idea
won't float with the kernel devs.
