Subject[PATCH v2] fuse: enable caching of symlinks
Date
FUSE file reads are cached in the page cache, but symlink reads are
not. This patch enables FUSE READLINK operations to be cached which
can improve performance of some FUSE workloads.

In particular, I'm working on a FUSE filesystem for access to source
code and discovered that about a 10% improvement to build times is
achieved with this patch (there are a lot of symlinks in the source
tree).

Changes in v2:
- Gated behind INIT flag for backwards compatibility
