Please run checkpatch on your patches so that we don't have to go and
fix up those issues later on.

Also, can you break this up into smaller patches please? You are doing
multiple things all at once.

And, are you sure about the millisecond field for access time stuff? It
was obviously added for some reason (there are lots in the spec that the
code does not yet cover, this seems odd being the other way around).
Did you test it against any other operating system exfat images to
ensure that it really is not being used at all? If so, which ones?
