I just want to a word on EROFS stuff (I'm not suitable to comment
on the current exfat implementation). Since EROFS stuff has been
in staging tree for more than a year, anyone who wants to review
it can review this filesystem at any time.

EROFS is not just a homebrew or experimental fs for now, it has been
widely used for many commerical smartphones, and we will upstream it
to AOSP for more Android smartphones after it gets merged to upstream.
I personally cc-ed you for a month, and I didn't get any objection
from others (including Linus) for about 2 months. That isn't because
of someone likes it, rather we cannot make no progress compared with
some exist fs community because this is our love work.

And it's self-contained driver at least, and it's disabled by default,
It cannot be stayed in staging tree to do a lot of EROFS feature
improvements itself forever (since it is cleaned enough).
It has proven its validity as well.
