davfs2 eats my data

Bug Description

davfs potentially destroys user data. Here is a simple way to recreate the problem.

- mount a web disk over davfs2 at /mnt/dav
- mv $BIGFILE /mnt/dav
- while the file is being moved, Ctrl-C the process

the file is now gone. It is removed from the source and has not yet made it to the destination. It also is not cached in ~/.davfs2 as in bug 1307962.

Tested in Trusty.
