Would be nice if we can read it on first use (after the hook exists check?)
and then cache it.

I'm not sure why this didn't turn op in the performance traces though. Maybe
because this file doesn't exist by default?

fsfs.conf does exist and is considerable larger than just a few lines
because we generate a few huge comments in it that have to be parsed again
and again.
