Sega Dreamcasts come with a "visual memory unit" (VMU) a micro-controller based peripheral with a small LCD screen and 128K of flash memory. The flash is partitioned as a file allocation table (FAT) based volume. The only physical VMUs released were limited to 128K of memory but it was generally believed that Sega planned to introduce devices with bigger memories and certainly the syntax of the filesystem, which I call VMUFAT, allows for larger volumes. Some years ago I contributed a driver for the VMU's flash and attempted to contribute one for the filesystem (see https://lkml.org/lkml/2009/2/14/127 for instance). I am not sure how many people are still hacking away at Linux on their Dreamcasts, but Linux or Android emulators exist for the Dreamcast and the VMU, so supporting the filesystem has a potential use.
