For some clients, yes - as do other NFS servers.
That's what noinode64 is for...
Also, newer nfs clients have an option:
[NFS] enable 64-bit inode numbers.
If zero, the NFS client will fake up a 32-bit inode
number for the readdir() and stat() syscalls instead
of returning the full 64-bit number.
The default is to return 64-bit inode numbers.
At some point we have to drag people kicking and screaming
out of 1988, I think! :)
(I am mindful that this may manifest itself as "xfs is incompatible"
but if we document this and advertise it a bit, I hope we can avoid
that. At some point, apps just need to be fixed.)
