Yes. Al pointed out that it's desirable behavior for most (simpler)
filesystems.

Basically, nothing should have presented the filehandle for this inode
to a client until after I_NEW has been cleared. So, any attempt to look
it up should give you back ESTALE at this point.

I'm not married to this approach however. If there's a better way to do
this, then I'm happy to consider it.
