Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] fuse: use newer inode info when writeback cache is enabled

Unh, it seems i_writecount not work.
If we modify file through lowerfs, i_writecount won't change, but the 
size already changed.
For example:
echo "111" > /lowerfs/test
ls -l /upper/test
echo "2222" >> /lowerfs/test
ls -l /upper/test

So, can you describe your test enviroment? including kernel version and 
fsx parameters, I will check it.
