To extend the topic with some discussion points:

- We are facing a rather familiar problem. Basically, SMB2 CHANGE_NOTIFY
  [1] is something what fsnotify normally does, except that we can't use
  it in cifsd kernel module. I see that NFS guys had [2] same issues some
  time ago.

  So the question is - how to do fs notify style monitoring in a kernel
  module (nfsd, cifsd)? Any chance the kernel can start exporting fsnotify
