AIUI many filesystems are not suitable for NFS export - Reiser (which
is not suitable for storing files, but let's NOT go there) + JFS being
a couple of example. NFS is very wedded to the idea of inodes, and
doesn't like not having them. What astonishes me is that, given that,
the NFS kernel code will still export such filesystems.
