    Why? Can't lookup() notice the change in remote st_dev as you cross the
    filesystem boundary?

    For NFS the plan is to automatically submount such remote
    subfilesystems. That fixes a host of problems including the one that you
    mention w.r.t. statfs, the problem of potential duplicate inode numbers,
    etc.

    Cheers,
    Trond
