      Allow me to clarify:

      I need to mount the FAT32 partitions using the shortname=winnt option.
      How do I accomplish that automatically?

      The uppercase->lowercase problem was fixed by doing the following:
      umount /dev/sdc5
      mount /dev/sdc5 /share/hdd/data/HDD_1_2_1 -o async,shortname=winnt

      But how do I tell the slug to use shortname=winnt option whenever it
      mounts the vfat disks on bootup or on disk reconnect?
