           Summary: add fatattr support
           Product: Busybox

I'm a long time user (and have even submitted patches) of busybox.

One of the regular problems I have to deal with is working with FAT32 file
systems using busybox.

It is really a hassle that fatattr(1) isn't supported under busybox.

I'd do it myself, but I just don't have the time. So, the best I can do is
submit an enhancement request.

Given that lsattr and chattr are supported, I'd think that supporting fatattr
shouldn't be a big deal. Given that busybox supports creating and checking
FAT32 file systems, not having fatattr(1) seems like it's almost a bug (only 2
out of 3 components required for working with FAT32 are present, yet for EXT2 3
out of 3 components are present).

Keep up the good work.
