Any comments on this patch? The referenced PR contains more comments and a
test program. It's not obvious from the diff, but the changes are to
nfs_setattr() in the va_size != VNOVAL && v_type == VREG case.

Fix a nasty problem when truncating files over NFS that was introduced
between FreeBSD 4.4 and 4.5: we need to set np->n_size again after
flushing/truncating buffers in case the cache calls nfs_write().
For example, if the file is truncated to 0 bytes, nfs_write() will
often detect that the file is being appended to (since the file
is 0 bytes long and we're writing to offset 0), so it then updates
np->n_size to reflect the size the file was before it was truncated.
