Section 4.2.3. says:

   FH4_VOL_MIGRATION
             The filehandle will expire as a result of migration.  If
             FH4_VOL_ANY is set, FH4_VOL_MIGRATION is redundant.

   FH4_VOL_RENAME
             The filehandle will expire during rename.  This includes a
             rename by the requesting client or a rename by any other
             client.  If FH4_VOL_ANY is set, FH4_VOL_RENAME is
             redundant.

.....

   Note that the bits FH4_VOL_MIGRATION and FH4_VOL_RENAME allow the
   client to determine that expiration has occurred whenever a specific
   event occurs, without an explicit filehandle expiration error from
   the server.  FH4_VOL_ANY does not provide this form of information.
   In situations where the server will expire many, but not all
   filehandles upon migration (e.g., all but those that are open),

It should say:

   FH4_VOL_MIGRATION
             The filehandle will expire as a result of migration.  If
             FH4_VOLATILE_ANY is set, FH4_VOL_MIGRATION is redundant.

   FH4_VOL_RENAME
             The filehandle will expire during rename.  This includes a
             rename by the requesting client or a rename by any other
             client.  If FH4_VOLATILE_ANY is set, FH4_VOL_RENAME is
             redundant.

.....

   Note that the bits FH4_VOL_MIGRATION and FH4_VOL_RENAME allow the
   client to determine that expiration has occurred whenever a specific
   event occurs, without an explicit filehandle expiration error from
   the server.  FH4_VOLATILE_ANY does not provide this form of information.
   In situations where the server will expire many, but not all
   filehandles upon migration (e.g., all but those that are open),

Notes:

The FH4_VOL_ANY should be replaced with FH4_VOLATILE_ANY (three times).
