As after file is removed fat_evict_inode will be called and fat_detach will be called from that place. So, fat_detach can be removed from vfat_unlink

NAK.  Please, realize that unlink and destruction of file are separate
operations.  ->evict_inode() may be called long after ->unlink(); moreover,
during that time you might have another file created, getting the
same directory entry our file used to have.

This is Unix, damnit.  You *can* open file, then unlink it and that file
will keep existing (i.e. you can write to that descriptor, read, etc.)
until it's closed.

Hi Al.
Sorry for noise. I understand what you said.
There was some confusing to me while checking fat's estale issue.:)
I will re-post patch-set about fat estale issue soon.(fix side-effect
informed by you and ogawa)
I am grateful that you review these patches also if you have time.
Thanks.
