Actually, this should work the way it is (it does on all of my systems).
Since there's no concept of file permissions on a fat/vfat filesystem,
the uid/gid are set from that of the current process by default, so
specifying them is unnecessary ... but whatever works.

It doesn't seem like the option order should make a difference, but I've
always specified it like so:

  /dev/hdf4   /fat           vfat    noauto,user,rw      0   0
