Subject[2.6.26 patch] fuse: add flag to turn on big writes
From
Date
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

Prior to 2.6.26 fuse only supported single page write requests. In
theory all fuse filesystem should be able support bigger than 4k
writes, as there's nothing in the API to prevent it. Unfortunately
there's a known case in NTFS-3G where big writes cause filesystem
corruption. There could also be other filesystems, where the lack of
testing with big write requests would result in bugs.

To prevent such problems on a kernel upgrade, disable big writes by
default, but let filesystems set a flag to turn it on.
