I'm pretty certain that Novell NetWare 4.x natively does it for its filesystem.
Not sure if Linux's NWFS implementation handles those fragments, though.
Also not sure if FSes which do block suballocation (Btrfs, Reiser4, UFS2)
handle the sub-blocks as fragments and report them as such in `f_frsize'.
It seems logical that they should.

And, given the push towards larger block sizes, more FSes will start to implement
something like fragments.
