    You've been sleeping in class. We always try to get the fileid together
    with the GETFH. The irritating bit is having to redo a GETATTR using the
    old filehandle in order to figure out if the 2 filehandles refer to the
    same file. Unlike filehandles, fileids can be reused.

    Then there is the point of dealing with that servers can (and do!)
    actually lie to you.
