Looking at a file without that patch we seem to be reading just zeroes
off pre-existing files; I'm surprised xfstest doesn't have a write
something/umount/mount/check content is identical test...

(You're probably aware of this, but note for others this breaks with the
rest of the patch series even if the big 9p patch isn't applied -- this
is the main reason I'd rather just get the patch in this cycle, as the
new patches got more tests with the full series than with the 9p writes
patch dropped.)

Would it make sense to just always update netfs's ctx->remote_i_size in
the various stat2inode calls instead?
We don't have any cache coherency so if a file changes beneath us
through an edit on the server (or through another client) hell will
break loose anyway, but stat would update the inode's i_size so it'll
likely be weird that the remote_i_size doesn't get updated.

With that being said, it seems to do the immediate job:
