There are various topics particularly important to network and cluster
file systems:
     - additional metadata on files, directories, mount points (statx,
enhancements to the mount API, ACLs etc.)
     - performance related features (leases/delegation, RDMA
integration, reflink/clone extensions, handling sideeffects of long
latency network connections on common fs operations by better
aggregating series of related operations together)
     - security features
     - mapping features available in various network and cluster FS
protocols to Linux

 (in the past we also have discussed richacl, and a few features that
would help Samba server).
