    [PATCH] fuse: add control filesystem · bafa9654
    Miklos Szeredi authored
    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
    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
    [ fix this fs for recent dhowells depredations]
    [ fix 64-bit printk warnings]
