Have you asked a spelling checker? All of mine prefer "file system" over
"filesystem". I bet Per's does, too. I'm tempted to check in this
change, just to make the language mix in our documents more colourful. :-)

Sadly, there are about 50 other "filesystems" in just the few files in
the root of the source tree, and gods know how many elsewhere. That's
more trouble than I'm prepared to go to, so I just fixed the
"walktrough" nit. Thanks, Per!

P.S.: Fear not, I'm sure we'll have an English translation of the docs
sooner or later. And a Swedish one too, no doubt! :-)
