[Gluster-devel] Storing list of dentries of children in parent inode

There is a requirement in write-behind where during readdirp we may have to
invalidate iatts/stats of some of the children of the directory [1]. For
lack of better alternatives I added a dentry list to parent inode which
contains all children that've been linked (through lookup or readdirp on
directory). I myself am not too comfortable with this solution as it might
eat up significant memory for large directories.
