That 'pvfs2-fs' is a PVFS "file system identifier" field. That field
could be anything, but in practice (and for any file system configured
with pvfs2-genconfig) that identifier is always 'pvfs2-fs'. The
identifier has meaning only to the pvfs2-server process.
It could be something else if you wanted a set of PVFS servers to host
two namespaces. Most people don't do this, however.
