SubjectRE: [PATCH] staging: exfat: add exfat filesystem code to
Date
I've summarized some of the big differences between sdfat and exfat
in linux-next.

1. sdfat has been refactored to improve compatibility, readability and
to be linux friendly.(included support mass storages larger than 2TB.)

2. sdfat has been optimized for the performance of SD-cards.
- Support SD-card friendly block allocation and delayed allocation
for vfat-fs only.
- Support aligned_mpage_write for both vfat-fs and exfat-fs

3. sdfat has been optimized for the performance of general operations
like create,lookup and readdir.

4. Fix many critical and minor bugs
- Handle many kinds of error conditions gracefully to prevent panic.
- Fix critical bugs related to rmdir, truncate behavior and so on...

5. Fix NLS functions

Note, that Samsung is still improving sdfat driver. For instance,
what will be realeased soon is sdfat v2.3.0, which will include support
for "UtcOffset" of "File Directory Entry", in order to satisfy
exFAT specification 7.4.

Thanks!
