Er, I just use Greg's qemu of https://github.com/gkurz/qemu.git: 9p-attr-fixes. I should have referenced it in commit message.

Yeah, I test this on my arm server. But as these codes are arch-free, we can test it in whatever a machine.
(also the server in arm can't be accessed by outer space, so sorry)
But I think that this test are far from serious and complete.

Sorry, I'm not sure what's the context of this line, does this line lie in "__add_fid”. I'm not sure about
why it do harm to clunk?

I put this counter set op before the fids are added to hlist. So I can make sure the counter value is 1 before
fids are used. It's redundant code. I can remove it in both "__add_fid" and "v9fs_open_fid_add", but we must take care of it that
no clunk is called between fids are created and added to hlist. Both are good for me.

Er, I rewrite it because I must acquire the intermedia fid from v9fs_fid_lookup and clunk it.

Sorry, need remove it.

Yeah, it's a tedious job to do that. Also we need to find a reliable test suit. Then we can check
this patch both from code and test.
