            Bug ID: 236226
           Summary: [FUSE]: cache negative lookups
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: asomers at FreeBSD.org

FUSE protocol 7.4 added the ability to cache negative lookups, but fuse(4) is
currently ignoring them.  Here's the documentation from libfuse:

* added support for negative entry caching: on lowlevel API if
  fuse_entry_param::ino is set to zero in reply to a lookup request,
  the kernel will cache the dentry for the specified amount of time.
