A new version of ntfs-3g and the fuse kernel module is available on

The fuse kernel module can now cache the file attributes for not
hard-linked files, which brings its performance on par with other
OSes. Below are the measured times for compiling xz for Windows
on a triple-boot desktop. All the needed files (source and header
files) are stored in a shared NTFS partition, and the same
compiler is used. There were 90 source files to compile, each of
them including 20 to 30 header files.

The package was compiled twice on each OS, showing a difference
related to data page cacheing.
