No, not really:
Look at my thread: samba vfs objects glusterfs is it now working?
I am just waiting for an answer to fix this.
The only way I succeeded to make it work is how you descriped (exporting
fuse mount thru samba)

Betreff: [Gluster-users] Gluster, Samba, and VFS

Stumbled upon
when trying to find info on how to make Gluster and Samba play nice as a
general purpose file server.  I have had severe performance problems in the
past with mounting the Gluster volume as a Fuse mount, then exporting the
Fuse mount thru Samba.  As I found out after setting up the cluster this is
somewhat expected when serving out lots of small files.  Was hoping VFS
would provide better performance when serving out lots and lots of small
Is anyone using VFS extensions in production?  Is it ready for prime time? 
I could not find a single reference to it on Gluster's main website (maybe I
am looking in the wrong place), so not sure of the stability or
supported-ness of this.
