Ok, so should I understand your answer as exFAT upcase table does not
support representing Unicode code points above U+FFFF and therefore
exFAT implementation should expect that toupper(u) = u and tolower(u) = u
for any Unicode code point u in range [U+10000, U+10FFFF]? This is how
current exfat linux driver behave.
