Hang on a minute mate. If all the file system isn't in NFS, what is NFS?
A piece of the file system? As in, "part of our file system is stateless".
If, in order to implement the entire file system, you have to access
components that are not stateless, then isn't it incorrect to say that
the file system is stateless?
