Default SD without FAT

Is there a cogent reason why the SD card cannot be partitioned without a FAT32 filesystem? From all the benchmarks I've ever seen, EXT4 kills FAT32. However, when I tried using an SD card partitioned with only an EXT4 partition, vold (the volume management daemon) wasn't happy at all.

I can manually mount the volume from the shell, but that does no good as far as android recognizing that the partition has been mounted.

I'd be willing to hack up the vold source code if it would be useful, but I just want to know if anyone has any thoughts or experience on the issue.


I'm running 6.0.0 on my Nexus One
