Please do not introduce a new fs specific ioctls. There is already
vfs-agnostic FS_IOC_SETFSLABEL ioctl, look at manpage:

I have WIP patches which adds support for FS_IOC_SETFSLABEL ioctl into
kernel vfat driver. But it is not possible to implement this ioctl
properly until issues with encoding are fixed in vfat driver. Some of
dependency patches I have sent to ML as RFC series:

If you have a time and motivation, I can send you my unfinished WIP
patches which implements FS_IOC_SETFSLABEL ioctl for vfat.
