Will be great if there was a proper context around this. Without any
explanation, how one is supposed to understand how this is useful.

By going through other email threads, looks like, with writeback
cache enabled, you want to invalidate attr cache and data cache
when file is opened next time. Right?

IOW, when file is closed, its changes will be flushed out. And when
file is reopened, server somehow is supposed to determine if file
has changed (on server by another client) and based on that determine
whether to invalidate attr and data cache on next open?

Even without that, on next open, it probably makes sense to being
invalidate attr cache. We have notion to invalidate data cache. So
it will be kind of odd that we can invalidate data but not attrs
on next open. Am I understanding it right?

Thanks
Vivek
