Dave, can you please send the getvolinfo output for this netapp so that
we can look if it's using the same flags?

This reminds me of the situation we have with older and newer Samba
versions.  John and Dave, I have no experience with this netapp stuff
and I also have no access to it.  Could you both please somehow compare
whether this might be a version problem or actually a complete different
product?  We should have some data points before making a decision in
favor of or against using the real inode numbers.
