I have now - except for testing against Amazon EFS.
Only problem is the one you found - thanks.

Subject: [PATCH] fs/notify: fdinfo can report unsupported file handles.

If a filesystem does not set sb->s_export_op, then it
does not support filehandles and export_fs_encode_fh()
and exportfs_encode_inode_fh() should not be called.
They will use export_encode_fh() is which is a default
that uses inode number generation number, but in general
they may not be stable.

So change exportfs_encode_inode_fh() to return FILEID_INVALID
if called on an unsupported Filesystem.  Currently only
notify/fdinfo can do that.

Also remove the WARNing from fdinfo when exportfs_encode_inode_fh()
returns FILEID_INVALID, as that is no an erroneous condition.
