As an encfs user, Let me share my experience

For encfs you can try to rebuild RDPQ kernel and enable FUSE support
and then just build/package the encfs client package
note there lot of neat useful fuse modules to bring to tizen
but you already about it since you're using encfs)

But enabling FUSE into kernel
might not match your (and ours/tizen) security concerns
so userland crypto or ecryptfs should be match better...
