sd_card driver Block service prevents FFAT file system use by multiple clients?

You're trying to make a second connection to the Block service, but you
should be making a second connection to the File_system service. The Block
service only provides a random-access chunk of memory, not access to files.

I was doing some testing with the 3rd party FFAT file system which
multiplexes clients accessing the file system. This was done in base-hw
on release 15.11.

The first client connected to the file system as expected and two files
were read and processed. When the second client attempted to make a
connection to the Block service, a "could not open block connection"
error was issued by the disk_initialize method in
(partial log below).

The Block service is provided by an sd_card driver (identical to the
omap4 driver for the Panda board). Based on my limited understanding of
the Genode architecture, I would think that is the correct behavior
since the first client is still connected and that the a multiplexer for
the service needs to be provided.

If that is correct, the FFAT file system effectively does not multiplex
client connections in a useful manner, for this scenario. How would one
go about doing that?
