But the inefficiency of mountfs - at least as currently implemented - scales
up with the number of individual values you want to retrieve, both in terms of
memory usage and time taken.

With fsinfo(), I've tried to batch values together where it makes sense - and
there's no lingering memory overhead - no extra inodes, dentries and files
