Could you please update error message for the reason why num_fats is allowed
only 1?

Let's remove exfat_mirror_bh(), FAT2_start_sector variable and the below
related codes together.

sbi->FAT2_start_sector = p_bpb->bsx.num_fats == 1 ?
                sbi->FAT1_start_sector :
                        sbi->FAT1_start_sector + sbi->num_FAT_sectors;

Thanks for your patch!
