Correct, that's basically it.

Some posix features are not quite there yet in CephFS:

E.g. fcntl locks (only possibly in most recent cephfs
code), so better start off with 'posix locking = no'.
And for ctdb this means that recovery lock may or may
not work, depending on the ceph version. There are more
things (not 100% sure about acls at this time).
People are actively working on the support of these things
in CephFS. If interested, I can try and compile a
list of things that are missing. If you are willing
to experiment and find out and report back here,
that would of course be great!
