Revalidation is only done when you force it or explicitly ask for a basic stat
or the data version number:

-	if (need_atime)
-		err = __nfs_revalidate_inode(NFS_SERVER(inode), inode);
-	else
-		err = nfs_revalidate_inode(NFS_SERVER(inode), inode);
-	if (!err) {
-		generic_fillattr(inode, stat);
-		stat->ino = nfs_compat_user_ino64(NFS_FILEID(inode));
+	if (force || stat->request_mask & (XSTAT_BASIC_STATS | XSTAT_VERSION)) {
+		if (force || need_atime)
+			err = __nfs_revalidate_inode(NFS_SERVER(inode), inode);
+		else
+			err = nfs_revalidate_inode(NFS_SERVER(inode), inode);
+		if (err)
+			goto out;

Unfortunately, I think I have to revalidate if any of XSTAT_BASIC_STATS are
requested to maintain compatibility with stat() so that stat() can be done
with xstat().  On the other hand, stat() could be done by userspace with
xstat() and AT_FORCE_ATTR_SYNC, I suppose.
