During my flight to GUADEC I discovered that utilitiy mkfs.vfat, used
by File Manager/Memory Card/Format, doesn't work, it breaks with
"Illegal Instruction". I had to use a nokia phone to format my
corrupted MMC :-(

PS: my MMC got corrupted while using SWAP on MMC and I ran a
heavy-reader application on the same MMC (I was starting solarwolf,
the python game).
