Could you write some documentation about that? Maybe another HOWTO would be

As it's only the creation that makes problems, a single FSVS run as user or
"sudo chown" should fix that, right?

I'd like to avoid doing things like setuid() in FSVS ... that makes security

Only if there's root_squash defined.
