Oops. Indeed. It becomes simpler..

Comments and using ATTR_OPEN in fs/fuse/dir.c confused me.

update_mtime()
{
/* If it's an open(O_TRUNC) or an ftruncate(), don't update */
if ((ivalid & ATTR_SIZE) && (ivalid & (ATTR_OPEN | ATTR_FILE)))
}
do_sys_truncate() calls do_truncate(path.dentry, length, 0, NULL);
while do_sys_ftruncate calls do_truncate(dentry, length,
ATTR_MTIME|ATTR_CTIME, file);
Notice the last file parameter... NULL or file..

As truncate and ftruncate syscalls should do the same job as fstat or stat.
It will lead to different results for FUSE.
Following will be 0: (ivalid & (ATTR_OPEN | ATTR_FILE)
FUSE comments says.. OR
/* If it's an open(O_TRUNC) or an ftruncate(), don't update */
Will make new version..
