No, I think that's enough for now.  As suggested by somebody on this
list some weeks ago, I will change the condition on which I use the real
inode number instead of faking the inode number using a hash value
depending on the FILE_SUPPORTS_OBJECT_IDS flag, except for Samba file
systems.  This should lower the chance to get unreliable inode numbers.

Otherwise, I'm always glad to get the file system flags returned by
other remote file systems, to raise the chance to get reliable inode
