Subject[PATCH] fs/9p: file attributes caching support
Date
Add a new mount option "cache=stat" for 9p filesystem.
It enables caching of file attributes.

The motivation behind this change is to support
open-unlink-fstat sequence from the client side:
fd = open("file", O_RDONLY);
remove("file");
fstat(fd, &stat); /* fail with -ENOENT */

The idea of the implementation is to avoid sending GETATTR
command to the server if file attributes can be fetched
from the inode struct of dentry.

In other words, this is a minimalistic cache implementation
to store GETATTR/STAT metadata.

Here are snippets of open-unlink-fstat sequence translated
to 9P2000.L protocol:
With cache=none
TWALK tag 0 fid 1 newfid 26 nwname 1 'file'
TGETATTR tag 0 fid 26 request_mask 0x17ff
TWALK tag 0 fid 26 newfid 27 nwname 0
TLOPEN tag 0 fid 27 flags 0100000
TUNLINKAT tag 0 dirfid 1 name 'file' flags 0
TWALK tag 0 fid 26 newfid 28 nwname 0
TREMOVE tag 0 fid 28
TGETATTR tag 0 fid 26 request_mask 0x3fff
RLERROR tag 0 ecode 2 <-- ENOENT error code
TCLUNK tag 0 fid 27
TCLUNK tag 0 fid 26

With cache=stat
TWALK tag 0 fid 1 newfid 26 nwname 1 'file'
TGETATTR tag 0 fid 26 request_mask 0x17ff <-- save fid 26 stat here
TWALK tag 0 fid 26 newfid 27 nwname 0
TLOPEN tag 0 fid 27 flags 0100000
TUNLINKAT tag 0 dirfid 1 name 'file' flags 0
TWALK tag 0 fid 26 newfid 28 nwname 0
TREMOVE tag 0 fid 28
<-- use saved fid 26 stat
TCLUNK tag 0 fid 27
TCLUNK tag 0 fid 26
