Sorry, seems that I mixed it up with the p9 case. But the performance
is may still an issue if you use NFS on top of CephFS (incl. all the
VM layer involved within this setup).

For me the question with all these NFS setups is: why should I use NFS
on top on CephFS? What is the right to exist of CephFS in this case? I
would like to use CephFS directly or via filesystem passthrough.
