kernel32: set default filesystem to Fat32 rather than UnixFS

This recent change, designed to prevent applications from doing NTFS
specific functions on Wine, has caused quite a few regressions in
Wine, because applications expect to see a Windows type file system

While we should eventually support NTFS (at least claim to along with
emulating those functions), fat32 is a sane default for now. It lacks
those special windows specific functions, but applications recognize
it as a 'valid' filesystem.
