I'm hashing the new inode just before sending the create request to the
MDS. When the reply comes in, the client then searches for that inode in
the hash. If I_NEW has been cleared in the meantime -- no problem. If
not, then we want the task handling the reply to wait until it is (and
not get back an -ESTALE).
