No, algorithmic mapping is only a source of problems.
It is easy to implement but does not scale at all.

There are no many parts in the code the assume algorithmic mapping and
an idmap is all we need.

Btw, this issue existed for months before the vampire (eg. cifs 2001 at
least), vampire is only the last one.
