     NAME
          mkexfatfs - create an exFAT file system

     SYNOPSIS
          mkexfatfs [ -i volume-id ] [ -n volume-name ] [ -p
          partition-first-sector ] [ -s sectors-per-cluster ] [ -V ]
          device

     DESCRIPTION
          mkexfatfs creates an exFAT file system on a block device.
          device is a special file corresponding to the partition on
          the device. Note that if this is an MBR partition then the
          file system type should be set to 0x07 (NTFS/exFAT) other-
          wise other operating systems may refuse to mount the file
          system.

     OPTIONS
          Command line options available:

          -i volume-id
               A 32-bit hexadecimal number. By default a value based
               on current time is set.

          -n volume-name
               Volume name (label), up to 15 characters. By default no
               label is set.

          -p partition-first-sector
               First sector of the partition starting from the begin-
               ning of the whole disk.  exFAT super block has a field
               for this value but in fact it's optional and does not
               affect anything. Default is 0.

          -s sectors-per-cluster
               Number of physical sectors per cluster (cluster is an
               allocation unit in exFAT). Must be a power of 2, i.e.
               1, 2, 4, 8, etc. Cluster size can not exceed 32 MB.
               Default cluster sizes are: 4 KB if volume size is less
               than 256 MB, 32 KB if volume size is from 256 MB to 32
               GB, 128 KB if volume size is 32 GB or larger.

          -V   Print version and copyright.

     EXIT CODES
          Zero is returned on successful creation. Any other code
          means an error.
