Andrew, I looked at this about a year ago.  You might find the thread in
the archives of this list.
At the time, the Cray plugin for the burst buffer was supported. However
staging in/out for other devices was not being developed.

You can achieve the same staging behaviour by using job dependencies.
Submit a stage-in job. then submit a second job which depends on this job
to do the computation.
