SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 6/5] statx: add STATX_RESULT_MASK flag

Can't you just make it up in fuse? Presumably, fuse doesn't support any of
the non-basic statx fields either?

That sounds kind of recursive - a bit in stx_mask would be saying whether or
not stx_mask can be used.

Besides, what would it mean if that bit says you can't use stx_mask? None of
the stx_* fields are valid?


Please don't use that bit.

Sorry, this patch doesn't make sense. Just set result_mask to
STATX_BASIC_STATS in fuse_fill_attr().
