The patent talks of a "common name space", so RR might not apply.
That would appear to work

It is in the Windows implementation but there isn't a requirement that other implementations follow their example. I don't think the Linux vfat does, haven't used fat volumes much lately to really say. Matters not though since if doing that would work around the patent it wouldn't be a loss of usability for vfat under linux to only show/accept the long file names.
