There is likely to be one problem that i also tripped along while porting
msdos: you must not return ENOENT from lookup, instead only the fact that
dentry->d_inode is NULL tells the VFS that the file does not exist. Thus
you should change all `return -ENOENT' in vfat_lookup to `return 0'. This
also includes the implicit ENOENT that you may get from vfat_find.
