See comments inline.

Rather than this, make fuse_request_init() take 'pages' as a second
argument.

Instead of '1' use a constant (e.g. FUSE_REQ_INLINE_PAGES)

To defend against programming errors, I think it would be wise to add

/** size of the 'pages' array */
unsigned max_pages;

so that when storing pages in the array we can check whether we are
overflowing the array.
