Developing a VFS plugin for inhouse backup solution

Inside my VFS SMB_VFS_OP_OPEN I want to store per-file data. The data needs to be accessible when
SMB_VFS_OP_CLOSE is called. Where (in what structure) should per-file data be stored?

Also, what is the effect doing a lot of filesystem I/O inside of SMB_VFS_OP_CLOSE? Will the entire
daemon hang until SMB_VFS_OP_CLOSE returns?
