As a follow up - the create-unlink-setattr (mainly ftruncate and anything
else which works on fd instead of path) isn't fixed by these patches, but
I'm currently working on a new patch, obviously on top of those two, to
make the setattr work too.

It's based on the same logic as the above patches though - use FIDs with
open fd's guest side and use open fd's host side if possible with f*
functions, otherwise path with l* functions.

It's bigger than the QEMU getattr patch, as there are no f* functions
available for ftruncate case, for example.

So if those two patches could be merged it'd be a lot easier to then
go forward with the setattr fix.

Thank you!
