--- Comment #16 from Shyamsundar <srangana at redhat.com> ---
Based on comment #14 and comment #15, here is what I think we need to answer,
and also some possible thoughts:

1) What is the contract between application calling glfs_readdirplus(_r) and

- return entry with known stat information about the same

2) What is the contract between various xlators and returned iatt information
and inode information?
- iatt validity seems to be ctime check, which is not the way forward, we need
to adapt to IATT_*_VALID flags in the future
- inode NULL or not? Currently as the write has occured there would be an inode
linked and returning a NULL seems logically incorrect, iatt invalidation seems
to be the better option IMO
- Du?

3) What is the contact between protocol layer (in this case gfapi) and xlator?
- I would assume it is the same as (2) and by protocol I mean
gfapi/FUSE(xlator) etc.

>From an iatt and its validity fields, we need to adapt and address the
IATT_*_VALID flags across the stack, and take this as the contract forward, but
