Also the current driver doesn't work with some devices using exFAT (like PS VIta), while the Samsung driver and Windows work just fine.

If this needs the kernel driver, it will be blocking for a bit.

Yay. This should now be unblocked. Will have a look at possibly packaging this in the near future :)

Alright. Probably shouldn't have jumped to that conclusion that soon. Looks like it might need to be enabled in the kernel settings first and Gnome Disks does not support these userspace utilities just yet.

@Jacalz I was playing around with this a bit, and the userspace utilities don't really seem to depend on the kernel support (although we *definitely* want that as well). Can you try testing the linked differential? Additionally: if you would like to maintain this as well, please comment with the appropriate content and I'll update MAINTAINERS.md!

@silke Thanks for posting the differential. I have much less time over nowadays, so feel free to keep yourself as the maintainer please :)

Yeah you are right, the user space utilities are probably not depending on the kernel driver. I thoughts so, but that is apparently not the case.
