SubjectRE: [PATCH] exfat: do not clear VolumeDirty in writeback

SB_DIRSYNC requests synchronization of the inode of the current file/dir.
The exfat implementation updates and syncs the dir-entries of the current file/dir.
If only SB_DIRSYNC is set and SB_SYNC is not set, it cannot be guaranteed that FAT/mirrorFAT is synchronized.
