GSA doesn't represent a filesystem; it refers to IBM's "Global Storage
Architecture", which to the best of my knowledge only exists inside IBM.  It
provides network-accessible storage for IBM employees, available via various
protocols, and generally kept on servers close to the employee's location in
network topology.  IBMers often mount it on /gsa .  Some use /gsa to refer to
the entire hierarchy, with paths like /gsa/server/path, and some use /gsa to
refer to their home server or home directory, with paths like /gsa/path; in
the latter case, VC *should* search /gsa.  I don't think vc-ignored-dir should
include paths based on IBM-internal services and conventions, particularly
when those conventions vary. :)

Hope that helps,
