Details

Description:
Now that the kernel ships with an exfat module and there are the exfatprogs userspace utilities, there's no need to use the FUSE driver for exFAT.

From a quick look, https://gitlab.archlinux.org/tpowa/archboot/-/blob/master/usr/lib/initcpio/install/arch_filesystems will need to be updated to use the binaries provided by exfatprogs.
