There is md-cache or you could try bcachefs.
I have used md-cache caching to SSD and it looks to make a really
significant speed improvment.
I tried bcache a few years ago but it was a pain since it was not yet
integrated into the Fedora code base and although bcachefs looks
interesting I believe its still a case of build your own kernel to run it.
