Strange, it did not report anything for me:

total: 0 errors, 0 warnings, 0 checks, 439 lines checked
0001-staging-exfat-add-millisecond-support.patch has no obvious style problems and is ready for submission.

Sure, I was just trying to improve the code a bit :)

Don't really have access to another OS, but here is what exfat-fuse has:

struct exfat_entry_meta1 /* file or directory info (part 1) */
uint8_t type; /* EXFAT_ENTRY_FILE */
uint8_t continuations;
le16_t checksum;
le16_t attrib; /* combination of EXFAT_ATTRIB_xxx */
le16_t __unknown1;
le16_t crtime, crdate; /* creation date and time */
le16_t mtime, mdate; /* latest modification date and time */
le16_t atime, adate; /* latest access date and time */
uint8_t crtime_cs; /* creation time in cs (centiseconds) */
uint8_t mtime_cs; /* latest modification time in cs */
uint8_t __unknown2[10];

The spec matches this and defines 3 additional UtcOffset fields that we don't use:


CreateUtcOffset (1 byte)
LastModifiedUtcOffset (1 byte)
LastAccessedUtcOffset (1 byte)
Reserved2 (7 bytes)

So I'm not sure where access_time_ms came from. In any case it was always set to
0 so it should not matter much?
