It doesn't work.
I try to restarting nfs-ganesha, and echo data to testfile92, the problem also exists.

After nfs-ganesha restart, 
1. A GETATTR is send from nfs-client for the testfile92, ganesha translates it to nameless lookup.
2. A ACCESS gets attributes from nfs-ganesha's cache (cached by #1).
3. A SETATTR sets the testfile92's size to 0, ganesha translates it to setattr fop.
4. A WRITE also get Invalid argument error.

If ganesha drops its cache, nfs client may write file by filehandle;
ganesha lookup it by nameless lookup from glusterfs,
so that, trusted.pgfid isn't created too.

I think, a name lookup is needed for testfile92 after quota enable.
