The difference is: The unixfs namespace extension is implemented in
shell namespace. This is a quite huge overhead compared to directly
accessing unix file system functions because of all the PIDL
conversions. So you will notice a big difference in performance using
the "root filesystem" in winefile compared to using the "shell
namespace" (another option already existing in winefile).
