fuse_blk is less suitable for unprivileged mounting than plain fuse.
fusermount doesn't allow mounting fuse_blk unprivileged, so there's
little data about that usecase (IIRC ntfs3g guys did that, or at least
tried to do it, but I don't remember the details).
As such, I think we should leave it out of the initial version. Which
means you can drop patches 1-2 from this series. Unless there's a
strong use case for this. In which case we should look hard at the
differences between fuse_blk and fuse and how that affects
unprivileged operation. There are a few assumptions about fuse_blk
filesystem being more "well behaved", I think.
