The FUSE kernel code for supporting "File-Systems In User-Space" has ready several updates for Linux 6.2 including some performance optimizations.

First and foremost with the FUSE changes for Linux 6.2 is now allowing some write requests to be processed. Non-extending parallel direct writes on the same file are now permitted with Linux 6.2 for better performance. This change for parallel direct writes to the same file was covered in an earlier Phoronix article back in October.

The Linux 6.2 FUSE updates also fix a performance problem around handling the "allow_sys_admin_access" module option.

There are also fixes and other enhancements with the FUSE code as outlined in this pull request.
