    [PATCH] fuse: add control filesystem · bafa9654

    Add a control filesystem to fuse, replacing the attributes currently exported
    through sysfs.  An empty directory '/sys/fs/fuse/connections' is still created
    in sysfs, and mounting the control filesystem here provides backward
    compatibility.
    
    Advantages of the control filesystem over the previous solution:
    
      - allows the object directory and the attributes to be owned by the
        filesystem owner, hence letting unpriviled users abort the
        filesystem connection
    
      - does not suffer from module unload race
