SubjectSymlink strangeness
All,

This is a strange one. With kernel 2.1.122-pre2, I have this situation:

total 669
drwxr-xr-x 23 hirsch system 36864 Sep 14 18:23 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 0 Sep 12 17:55 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 hirsch system 13 Sep 12 14:29 linux -> linux-2.1.122
drwxr-xr-x 15 hirsch system 1024 Sep 13 13:25 linux-2.1.122

Doing this gets me zero hits:

(hirsch@air) ~ : find /usr/src/linux -name "*.h" -print
(hirsch@air) ~ :

While this works:

(hirsch@air) ~ : find /usr/src/linux-2.1.122 -name "*.h" -print
/usr/src/linux-2.1.122/fs/isofs/rock.h
/usr/src/linux-2.1.122/fs/hpfs/hpfs.h
/usr/src/linux-2.1.122/fs/hpfs/hpfs_caps.h
/usr/src/linux-2.1.122/fs/fat/tables.h

(snip!)

If I start the find below the root of the source tree, e.g:

find /usr/src/linux/arch ....(etc.)
it works properly.

Seems like broken behavior.

Steve
