Right. I fixed many confusions between nodeid and ino, but now I tend to
get an unreliable behavior from READDIR. Sometime the ino fits the value
I get through LOOKUP, sometimes it does not.

For instance, a directrories' correct ino (as reported by LOOKUP) is
264083456, but sometime READDIR gives me 383731716

On the backends the trusted.gfid attributes are correct and coherent:
20 95 82 15 fe aa 46 48 ac de 5f 3e 8d a7 76 e5 

But none of the value above (16 df 48 04 and 0f bd 98 00) match the 8
lower bytes of gfid. This is 3.2.3
