Can't the client determine that the size has been changed and deduce
that it does not need to sleep? Since it is a fairly common case, it
would improve performance generally instead just being a test hack.

It would also be nice if the client could take advantage of
high-resolution timestamps when these are available. I suppose the
hard part is determining whether the underlying file system supports
it, even when the interface is present.
