    adfs: add hexadecimal filetype suffix option · da23ef05
    Stuart Swales authored
    ADFS (FileCore) storage complies with the RISC OS filetype specification
    (12 bits of file type information is stored in the file load address,
    rather than using a file extension).  The existing driver largely ignores
    this information and does not present it to the end user.
    It is desirable that stored filetypes be made visible to the end user to
    facilitate a precise copy of data and metadata from a hard disc (or image
    thereof) into a RISC OS emulator (such as RPCEmu) or to a network share
    which can be accessed by real Acorn systems.
    This patch implements a per-mount filetype suffix option (use -o
    ftsuffix=1) to present any filetype as a ,xyz hexadecimal suffix on each
    file.  This type suffix is compatible with that used by RISC OS systems
    that access network servers using NFS client software and by RPCemu's host
    filing system.
