It'll conflict with the current exfat staging drivers.
And moreover, I don't think it makes sense to use sdfat naming in mainline.

Samsung uses it since it handles all fat filesystems.

What I'm proposing is to remove the current exfat drivers and add
sdfat-based one(that I removed fat16/32 handlings and renamed to
exfat).

Perhaps Namjae didn't pick up our questions with all those mails we

Maybe ping him again?

Thanks.
