    9p: Include fsync support for 9p client · 7a4439c4

    Implement the fsync in the client side by marking stat field values to 'don't touch' so that server may 
    interpret it as a request to guarantee that the contents of the associated file are committed to stable 
    storage before the Rwstat message is returned.
    
    Without this patch, calling fsync on a 9p file results in "Invalid argument" error. Please check the attached 
    C program.
