[Gluster-users] O_DIRECT with FUSE from Linux 3.4+

quick question regarding GlusterFS with O_DIRECT, which has popped up
a few times on this list in recent months. As of Linux 3.4 (released
yesterday), FUSE supports O_DIRECT. Does that mean that GlusterFS
users can expect for this to "just work", i.e. will GlusterFS support
O_DIRECT automatically as long as it's running on post-3.4 FUSE -- or
is there some work left to be done within GlusterFS proper for
O_DIRECT to be supported?

All thoughts much appreciated. Thanks!
