    erk, I'm not an i_version person. It seems that it's only used on
    directories (to patch up readdir coherency problems) so I guess I
    misled you there.

    There's file_struct.f_version, which is no good.

    i_generation is no good either.

    We've documented these things so wonderfully!

    i_writecount looks good?
