You'd rather want to save the indirection caused by sshfs-posixovl,
and use something like ccgfs which is operating much more precise
with regard to POSIX features. There is no layer like sshfs where you
lose hardlinks, none like posixovl that has to refabricate them using
pseudofiles, instead it is just like NFS (minus fuse "bugs").
