[oi-dev] Fuse and NTFS-3g

I created patches for oi-sfe to update SFEfuse to fuse 2.8.6. This supercedes the original fuse sources from the OpenSolaris (OSOL) website project.
Still, the original OSOLfuse 2.7.1 lives in the oi-SFE repo for now to use and test.
Once the official stable releases of the distros are out (like Solaris 11 and oi_*), I'll refine things a bit more.

Two points: this project is now hosted at opensolaris.org, so please
consider forking it somewhere like bitbucket (it requires both Studio
Express and gcc, so I'm not sure if we'll need a fork for that
reason--however way you cut it, nothing on opensolaris.org is getting
care and feeding in the open, so I don't see why you wouldn't re-host it
at this point). I also take Gordon's point about the stability of
something like a semi-orphaned kernel module for which we don't have
upstream issue tracking (forking gets this out in the open). Whether we
flag this by repo or other metadata (and there are other cases where we
ought to consider this, such as transitioning off of legacy libraries),
we should have some way of marking caveat emptor.
