This seems like something useful, but I wonder if it'll need some sort
of serialization vs. concurrent updates. Can we assume that netfs itself
will never call netfs_resize_file?

Ceph already has some pretty complicated size tracking, since it can get
async notifications of size changes from the MDS. We'll have to consider
how to integrate this with what it does. Probably this will replace one
(or more?) of its fields.

We may need to offer up some guidance wrt locking.
