No.  The file name is in general not available, also because in many cases
there isn't a useful filename, and the other reason is that this filename
might become invalid any time (unlink).

It's basically the same as with file descriptors, you can't get the filename
for one of those either (for the same reason, by the way).

But! you can get a _port_ to the underlying node, and that is much better. 
So you can manipulate and query the underlying node.  (grep for 'underlying'
in the Hurd sources how to do that).
