Bug Description

ESTALE which is the base for the error text of "Stale NFS file handle" in sysdeps/gnu/errlist.c happens on *any* stale filehandle, totally independent from the fact if the undelying filesystem is NFS or is a corrupt ext2/3 filesystem with dangling inodes. the error message should be reworded to reflect reality instead of (in many cases) falsely pointing to NFS only.
