You can do it just like any other filesystem (not specific to either FUSE
or gluster) - getdents()/readdir() a small bunch, either retain the open
file descriptor or remember the output of telldir(), and later either use
the save filed descriptor or issue seekdir() to the cookie returned by
telldir(), and resume further getdents() /readdir() bunch.
