There was talk of a FUSE client developed with liblustre already a few
years ago, but it was never released as far as I know.  Maybe someone who
was working on that could post a link to it here.

It would still be possible to do this with the liblustre code from Lustre
2.5 or so, but that wouldn't support some of the newer features being
developed (e.g. DNE), but it might be enough for your needs.
