A quick comment without reading this patch, please do add some
documentation which explains what's the existing behavior and what
the new behavior.

Probably Documentation/filesystem/fuse.rst is right place. We have
so many fine knobs w.r.t attr caching and data caching and what kind
of cache consistency to expect but there is no documentation. So
very hard to figure out what to expect in different scenarios for
a user.

I think this patch series probably a good time to start some cache
coherency related documentation in fuse and that will help users
as well as will provide context for future changes.

Thanks
Vivek
