Subject[PATCH] fat: Relax checks for sector size and media type
Date
Windows fastfat.sys driver accepts also media types 0x00 and 0x01 and
sector sizes 128 and 256 bytes. Linux mkfs.fat can format disk also to
larger FAT sector sizes then 4096 bytes, therefore relax also upper limit
restriction.

Source code of Windows 10 Anniversary Update fastfat.sys driver is now
available on github.

Check for valid media types in fastfat.sys is there:

And check for valid sector size is there:
