Well, there's one stumling block I haven't made progress on yet:

I've changed the prototype of ->fsync to lose the dentry as we should
always have a valid file struct.  Except that nfsd doesn't on
directories.  So I either need to fake up a file there, or bail out
and add a ->dir_sync export operation that needs just a dentry.
