Subject: [RFC PATCH 27/76] fscache: Keep track of size of a file last set
 independently on the server

Keep track of the size of a file that we're caching as last set
independently on the server by another client.  As long as this does not
change, we can make the assumption that anything over that boundary, if not
represented in the local cache, will not be represented on the server
either and can be just cleared rather than being read, thereby saving a
trip to the server.

This only works if we make space in the cache by zapping whole files and
not just punching bits out of them as if we write to the server but don't
keep a copy in the cache, the assumption mentioned above no longer holds
true.

We also need to update this size when invalidation occurs.
