Linux 5.18 has two key improvements to exFAT file system support

According to the foreign media Phoronix presentation: This week’s Linux 5.18 merge window has two driver PRs for the Microsoft exFAT file system, both of which are very important driver patches, albeit small in number. exFAT on Linux 5.18+ adds an option to allow access to paths with trailing points. Until now, the exFAT driver unconditionally removed trailing dots from path components, while Linux 5.18 introduced the exFAT “keep_last_dots” mount option, which can be used to control whether trailing dots are removed.
