Many parts of coreutils assume st_dev/st_ino are reliable, e.g., SAME_INODE.

With multiple mounts (e.g., NFS) it's possible for the same file to have different st_dev values.

GNU tar, on occasion, also looks at st_birthtime, which is a win on systems that support it, as st_birthtime disambiguates the case when inode numbers are reused.  gnulib/fts/coreutils should probably use st_birthtime too, if available.

Jim, do all filesystems reliably implement st_dev/st_ino?
