Ok - in that case I hope someone else can tell you the right
way to mount this (and it may well be fuseblk, but i've not
used that myself) and I'll read the answer and learn :)

In the past, for something like this I would have done

	mount -o loop,offset=32256 /dev/mapper/nintendo-backupos /mnt/backups

but that probably isn't right for you, and isn't helpful (well,
it become arduous to calculate the offset) if the type 83 partition
wasn't the first one.
