Fuse allows filesystems to bypass the page cache using the "direct_io"
flag. This is not the same as O_DIRECT, it's dictated by the
filesystem not the application.
Some functionality didn't work in this mode, however. This short
patchset improves that:
1. fuse: allow kernel to access "direct_io" files
2. fuse: allow private mappings of "direct_io" files
3. splice: implement default splice_read method
The third patch is not fuse specific, it implements ->splice_read()
for any filesystem which doesn't provide one.
Comments are welcome.
