Bug Description

Please backport fuse-exfat 1.0.1-1 (universe) from trusty to precise, quantal.

Reason for the backport:
========================
exFAT filesystems are becoming fairly common. As the LTS will still supported for some time, it would be nice if it could support this filesystem, similar to the rationale for backporting hardware support.

Testing:
========
Built in ppa:rtandy/exfat. Mounted an exFAT filesystem created on Windows 7 and tested creating, modifying, and deleting files. Afterwards, back on Windows, verified with chkdsk.exe that the filesystem was still sane. Repeated the same on precise and quantal.

* precise:
[✓] Package builds without modification
[✓] exfat-fuse installs cleanly and runs
* quantal:
[✓] Package builds without modification
[✓] exfat-fuse installs cleanly and runs

Reverse dependencies:
=====================

exfat-fuse
----------
* exfat-utils
  [✓] quantal (Reverse-Recommends)
  - verified that exfat-fuse from quantal still works normally after installing the backported exfat-utils

exfat-fuse + exfat-utils should be included into Baltix GNU/Linux PPA for all LTS releasers: 12.04 (Precise) and 10.04 (Lucid)

Also exfat-fuse and exfat-utils packages should be included in default Baltix DVD/USB image (listed as Recommends in ubuntu-defaults-baltix metapackage).
