Because stx_vol must not be used by userspace to distinguish between
unique inodes.  To determine if two inodes are distinct within a
filesystem (which may have many volumes) it should query the file
handle and compare that.

If we'll have a filesystem that has a different stx_vol but the same
fh, all the better.
