That would be incorrect.

The one that I am intimately familiar with IBM's GPFS uses it's own 
special VFS layer. Given that GPFS holds real creation times and real 
windows attributes for files, in addition to doing NFS v4 ACL's it is 
pretty sweet for using with Samba when using the GPFS VFS module.
