Have you tried "racer.sh"? That is a very stressful metadata tester
that does random operations on a handful of file and directory names.
It can be run on a single client, or on multiple clients and needs no
coordination between the clients. I guess it won't tell you if you
are getting ESTALE back correctly or not, but it can quickly find if
there are any problems with the retrying code.

I've attached an updated tarball of the original scripts here.

Cheers, Andreas
