GEOM gate and shfs are unrelated.  GEOM gate provides remote access to
a GEOM (e.g. a disk object).  shfs accesses files remotly via an ssh
connection much like an ftp file system.  If you wrote an appropriate
daemon, it should be straight forward to do this via portalfs.  See
mount_portalfs(8) for more info.
