I need to read large (10+GB) amount of data from USB stick so I wonder if kernel NTFS is available. I know about ntfs-3g, but I'm rather skeptical about its performance. I do not care about write support, I need only reading. Thank you!

With only 10 GB data to read, I think you'll take a lot more time waiting
for somebody to test out non-ntfs-3g NTFS support than you will copying
data. If it was 10 TB, copied once per day, I might feel differently, but
10 GB just isn't that much assuming your hardware (USB stick in
particular) can support high USB speeds.
