Bug Description

There is a much newer stable release of fuse-exfat 1.1.0 (released on 2014-07-07) available in Debian and Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid) now, along with matching updated exfat-utils.

It has numerous bug fixes and hopefully will be backported to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS since its needed for interoperability SDXC cards (lots of Android and other phones, tablets and other hardware).

Changes between 1.0.1 (currently in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) and 1.1.0 (in Ubuntu 15.04):

* Relicensed the project from GPLv3+ to GPLv2+.
* OpenBSD support [Helg Bredow].
* Improved I/O errors handling.
* Implemented fsync() and fsyncdir().
* Fixed crash on Mac OS X 10.5 caused by non-standard use of realpath(). Also fixed TrueCrypt disks unmounting.
* Avoid extra erase on writes to the end of a file. This should improve linear write speed.
* Allow arbitrary changing of lower 9 bits of mode. Allow owner/group changing to the same owner/group. This fixes rsync.
* Fixed buffers overflows when handling lengthy file names.
* Fixed "real size does not equal to size" error on volumes with pagefile.sys.
* Fixed negative IUsed in "df -i" output.
