Well I think there should always be a FAT partition, as the firmware can
only read FAT partitions and cannot be modified, so there should be a
small FAT partition with rockbox on it and an ext2 partition with the
music, and Rockbox should be able to understand an ext2 filesystem and
to load another partition...
Hmm I think it's a bit too complicated (moreover FAT partitions are
supported by all operating systems and Rockbox is already 200KB)
