Please remind me. Why can't NFS set inode->i_mode, call
nfs_fill_inode() etc. in the 'init_locked' callback?
As for the issue of the stat() problem you mentioned: does your server
have a monotonically increasing inode->i_ctime? If ntp or something
like that keeps turning the clock backward on the server, then the NFS
client has no chance of recognizing which attribute updates are the
more recent ones.
