Should there be a check to see if this is needed?


I've considered whether to add a check here, since the user could invoke
'restore' through ioctl at any time.

If 'restore' is called without user daemon crashing. Then the req being
processed by the user daemon will be reset to CACHEFILES_REQ_NEW and
could be re-read and processed by the user daemon.

For OPEN req:  The user daemon will ignore this repeated req since the
related anonymous fd is the same.

For READ req: The user daemon will read the same part of the data again
and write it to fscache (this will not cause any error)

For CLOSE req: Actually the user daemon will close this anonymous fd,
but fortunately [PATCH 3/5] could handle this case by reopening it

Thus "restore" could be called at any time without error, checks
might introduce extra race conditions.
