I just took a very quick look, and the code has all usual bugs. E.g., the
filesystem is marked mpsafe, while insmntque() is performed before new
vnode is initialized.

The fuse was known to cause random kernel memory corruption, were the issues
identified and fixed ?

Who is going to maintain the code ? I once objected strongly for throwing
the fuse into svn without first fixing bugs, and having a maintainer.
