do a "df -T -i"
and I bet it will show that you are using ext3 for / and /backups,
tmpfs for /dev, and reiserfs for those "zero inode" volumes.

In which case that is normal, yes.
Reiserfs simply puts its inodes anywhere, until there is no more space.
It does not have any notion of "total" inodes, thus there are no
"free" inodes, either.  It probably knows the number of used inodes.
But because statfs() does only provide for "total" and "free",
and leaves "used" to be calculated, there is no way to return that info.
