Hi Al,

	Could you tell me where Affs is broken ? affs_get_parent() uses d_obtain_alias() and
your patch fixes the lookup. Do you suggest other updates or to mark nfs support experimental in AFFS or 
 something else ?

(btw, other export functions are
fh_to_dentry using generic_fh_to_dentry()
fh_to_parent using generic_fh_to_parent()
