First: thanks for this software. It helps me a lot.

I'm trying to prevent the kernel from caching stuff read from a squashfs. Is that possible ?

(Background: i'm trying to silence my laptop. Squashed /lib, /opt, /usr /sbin /bin... modified initrd to copy the files into a ramfs and remounted /lib, /opt,.. from there. So there is no real need for caching files inside the squashed fs. But other files outside the squashfs should be cached, therefore i'm trying to reduce the filecache used by squashfs)
