Thanks! I think I understood what you mean and I'll be sending an
updated version soon.

No problem. I got something ready and tested on my side.

Will do.

Everything else uses uint32_t for flags in this file. I'll make it
uint64_t in the next update.

I considered that before as well. In case the interface changes an
updated struct fuse_copy_file_range_out can always be added later. And
hopefully there is no reason to change it at all.

At the moment I am running a few more test to verify an updated patch,
and will send it out later today.
