+2.17 /proc/sys/fs/types/ - File system type specific parameters
+----------------------------------------------------------------
+
+There's a separate directory /proc/sys/fs/types/<type>/ for each
+filesystem type, containing the following files:
+
+usermount_safe
+--------------
+
+Setting this to non-zero will allow filesystems of this type to be
+mounted by unprivileged users (note, that there are other
+prerequisites as well).
+
+Fuse has been designed to be as safe as possible, and some
+distributions already ship with unprivileged fuse mounts enabled by
+default. There are still some situations (multi-user systems with
+untrusted users in particular), where enabling this for fuse might not
+be appropriate. For more details, see Documentation/filesystems/fuse.txt
+
+Procfs is also safe, but unprivileged mounting of it is not usually
+necessary (bind mounting is equivalent).
+
+Most other filesystems are unsafe. Here are just some of the issues,
+that must be resolved before a filesystem can be declared safe:
+
+ - no strict input checking (buffer overruns, directory loops, etc)
+ - network filesystem deadlocks when mounting from localhost
+ - no permission checking when opening the device
+ - changing mount options when mounting a new instance of a filesystem
