SubjectRe: [PATCH] staging: exfat: add exfat filesystem code to staging

This is not truth. This specification is not "full". There are missing
important details, like how is TexFAT implemented. In that specification
is just reference to other unpublished documents. So it is classic MS
way, they release something incomplete and incompatible with their own
NT implementation, like with FAT32 vs fastfat.sys.

I would be very very careful about existence of such documentation until
somebody implement it and do some testing against MS own implementation.
