* The fileid_type identifies how the file within the filesystem is encoded.
* In theory this is freely set and parsed by the filesystem, but we try to
* stick to conventions so we can share some generic code and don't confuse
* sniffers like ethereal/wireshark.
* The filesystem must not use the value '0' or '0xff'.

* The root, or export point, of the filesystem.

* struct export_operations - for nfsd to communicate with file systems
* @encode_fh: encode a file handle fragment from a dentry
* @fh_to_dentry: find the implied object and get a dentry for it
* @fh_to_parent: find the implied object's parent and get a dentry for it
* @get_name: find the name for a given inode in a given directory
* @get_parent: find the parent of a given directory
* See Documentation/filesystems/Exporting for details on how to use
* this interface correctly.
* encode_fh:
* @encode_fh should store in the file handle fragment @fh (using at most
* @max_len bytes) information that can be used by @decode_fh to recover the
* file refered to by the &struct dentry @de. If the @connectable flag is
* set, the encode_fh() should store sufficient information so that a good
* attempt can be made to find not only the file but also it's place in the
* filesystem. This typically means storing a reference to de->d_parent in
* the filehandle fragment. encode_fh() should return the number of bytes
* stored or a negative error code such as %-ENOSPC
* fh_to_dentry:
* @fh_to_dentry is given a &struct super_block (@sb) and a file handle
* fragment (@fh, @fh_len). It should return a &struct dentry which refers
* to the same file that the file handle fragment refers to. If it cannot,
* it should return a %NULL pointer if the file was found but no acceptable
* &dentries were available, or an %ERR_PTR error code indicating why it
* couldn't be found (e.g. %ENOENT or %ENOMEM). Any suitable dentry can be
* returned including, if necessary, a new dentry created with d_alloc_root.
* The caller can then find any other extant dentries by following the
* d_alias links.
* fh_to_parent:
* Same as @fh_to_dentry, except that it returns a pointer to the parent
* dentry if it was encoded into the filehandle fragment by @encode_fh.
* get_name:
* @get_name should find a name for the given @child in the given @parent
* directory. The name should be stored in the @name (with the
* understanding that it is already pointing to a a %NAME_MAX+1 sized
* buffer. get_name() should return %0 on success, a negative error code
* or error. @get_name will be called without @parent->i_mutex held.
* get_parent:
* @get_parent should find the parent directory for the given @child which
* is also a directory. In the event that it cannot be found, or storage
* space cannot be allocated, a %ERR_PTR should be returned.
* Locking rules:
* get_parent is called with child->d_inode->i_mutex down
* get_name is not (which is possibly inconsistent)
