Ugh, right. I wonder where that long long came from. I probably
copied the generic_file_llseek() from some earlier kernel...

No, that's the whole point of the fuse specific function: fuse doesn't
use i_mutex to protect writing i_size, instead it uses a per
filesystem spinlock.

This is probably worth a comment though, so I'll do that.

Thanks,
