Hi Vivek,

Yes, exactly. This patch is supposed to be a supplement to the
writeback_cache consistency enhancement patch [1]. Sorry for the lack
of explanation. I think I will send this and the enhancement patch as
a patchset later after there is more comments and discussions.

Yes, to achieve this so-called close-to-open consistency, this patch
gives a knod to FUSE server handler to invalidate attributes cache on
file open.

Yes, Exactly. It could also be used for immediate attr invalidation in
write-through mode.
