[Gluster-users] XFS inode64 and Gluster 3.2.5 NFS export

I've recently had dataloss on an XFS (inode64) glusterfs (3.2.5) NFS exported file system.  I was using the gluster NFS server.

On the XFS FAQ page, they have this:

Q: Why doesn't NFS-exporting subdirectories of inode64-mounted filesystem work?

The default fsid type encodes only 32-bit of the inode number for subdirectory exports. However, exporting the root of the filesystem works, or using one of the non-default fsid types (fsid=uuid in /etc/exports with recent nfs-utils) should work as well. (Thanks, Christoph!)

Is this still a factor under Gluster NFS server?
