I'd rather not come out and accuse Samsung of literally copying GPL code, relicensing it under a proprietary license, and distributing it, but encourage people to take a look at exfat_super.c and notice the coding style matches the kernel coding style, not that of the rest of the driver.

Compare instead with the contents of fs/fat/misc.c, fs/fat/dir.c, fs/fat/namei_vfat.c, and fs/fat/file.c. Functions like __fat_readdir, vfat_create, parse_options, and many others.
