Since it seems that you are primarily interested in persistent caching,
you may want to consider OpenAFS: www.openafs.org

Intermezzo/InterSync (available in Linux-2.4, removed from Linux-2.6)
was designed for the problem that you are trying to solve, but it still
needed work, and is now moribund.  Peter Braam has stated his intention
to add similar features to Lustre, but that's a long way off.
