> When the client asks for a stable write but the prerequisite writes are not transferred
to NFS gateway, the stableness can't be honored. NFS gateway has to treat the write as unstable
write and set the flag to UNSTABLE in the write response.
> One bug was found during test with Ubuntu client when copying one 1KB file. For small
files like 1KB file, Ubuntu client does one stable write (with FILE_SYNC flag). However, NFS
gateway missed one place where(OpenFileCtx#doSingleWrite) it sends response with the flag
NOT updated to UNSTABLE.
> With this bug, the client thinks the write is on disk and thus doesn't send COMMIT anymore.
The following test tries to read the data back and of course fails to do so since the data
was not synced.
