9p: Include fsync support for 9p client

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.
