Linux v5.2-rc1 - fuse
tristate "FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) support"
With FUSE it is possible to implement a fully functional filesystem
in a userspace program.
There's also a companion library: libfuse2. This library is available
from the FUSE homepage:
although chances are your distribution already has that library
installed if you've installed the "fuse" package itself.
See <file:Documentation/filesystems/fuse.txt> for more information.
See <file:Documentation/Changes> for needed library/utility version.
If you want to develop a userspace FS, or if you want to use
a filesystem based on FUSE, answer Y or M.
tristate "Character device in Userspace support"
depends on FUSE_FS
This FUSE extension allows character devices to be
implemented in userspace.
If you want to develop or use a userspace character device
based on CUSE, answer Y or M.
