Re: [PATCH] staging: exfat: add exfat filesystem code to

I just noticed that this exfat-staging drivers are based on the old
Samsung's 1.x exFAT drivers.

I've been working to get the newer Samsung's driver(now named "sdFAT")
to fit better for general Linux users, and I believe it can provide a
better base for the community to work on(and hopefully complies better
to the mainline coding standard).

I also included some rudimentary benchmark results.

I encourage mainline developers to explore this driver base and see if
it's worth to switch, since it's the early days of exfat-staging.

To others watching this thread:
It's more than likely that you can start using exFAT reliably right
away by following the link above. It's tested on all major LTS kernels
ranging from 3.4 to 4.19 and the ones Canonical uses for Ubuntu: 3.4,
3.10, 3.18, 4.1, 4.4, 4.9, 4.14, 4.19 and 4.15, 5.0, 5.2, and 5.3-rc.
