fuse: support clients that don't implement 'open'
open/release operations require userspace transitions to keep track of the open count and to perform any FS-specific setup. However, for some purely read-only FSs which don't need to perform any setup at open/release time, we can avoid the performance overhead of calling into userspace for open/release calls. This patch adds the necessary support to the fuse kernel modules to prevent open/release operations from hitting in userspace. When the client returns ENOSYS, we avoid sending the subsequent release to userspace, and also remember this so that future opens also don't trigger a userspace operation.
