whaa??

If I have understood correctly,
GFS is a "cooked" filesystem (like ext3/jfs/xfs etc.) which expects a
raw device underneath such as HDD partition / LUN either from
SAN/iSCSI device.
NFS is fileshareing protocol which requires a "cooked" file system
underneath such as ext3/gfs/jfs/xfs etc..

So the question of "GFS over NFS" is ab initio absurdum (pardon my french here)
