The NTFS driver included in the kernel is considered unreliable in its
support for NTFS writing.
The de-facto standard is NTFS-3G, which is developed as a FUSE module
(i.e. not a kernel module).
I would advise against using the kernel module as it is recognized as
not supporting NTFS writing reliably.
