Having a fat_close() for read-only files is pointless, since there is nothing that needs to be done. Read access update could be done in fat_open(), or we'd simply add a call in file.c:close() to a new fat_close() function.

I fail to see how the absense of empty functions that do nothing is a design problem. :-)
