Hmm, so we actually explicitly want to be nice on NFS. This is supposed
to be one supported transport for the journal. The current code will
even automatically notice if NFS is used suggest not relying on inotify
in those cases. See sd_journal_reliable_fd() for information on that.

That said, testing for NFS has been light so far, and especially the NFS
part of the code is very new still.
