  1. lib: Fix safe_mount() when exfat or ntfs are not using fuse

    kerneltoast authored and metan-ucw committed Aug 27, 2019
    safe_mount() incorrectly assumes that when exfat or ntfs are attempted,
    that they must be using fuse. However, ntfs and exfat can have proper
    kernel drivers and thus mount successfully without the use of fuse. When
    there *is* a proper kernel driver for ntfs or exfat, safe_mount()
    attempts to use fuse and errors out.
    Fix this by trying to mount the requested fs normally first, before
    assuming that it needs fuse in the case of exfat and ntfs.
