FileSys and SD modules, plus eMOS update

First, a quick update on eMOS: we have modified the eMOS_MsgReceive function to include a timeout value, so that the call may timeout if no message is received within the specified time period. A couple minor functions are also added. See the doc for details.

// EDIT: yes, the goal is to support both FAT16 and FAT32. Long File Name under FAT32 may require end user to pay Microsoft a licensing fee of $0.25 per copy used, or we may support a different LFN implemenation

We are now looking into our first plug-in module for eMOS, which is a file system and SD driver. We will probably also include a standalone version that does not require eMOS. The eMOS version will of course fully support multitasking.

In terms of API, the obvious choice for the FS is in fact the stdio.h C API, in summary:
