    SubjectBUG: mkdir /mount-point fails wrongly in pre8
    The latest (second?) pre8 kernel (at least, pre5 doesn't do it) fails
    mkdir'ing a directory which is mount point, with ENOENT instead of
    EEXIST, breaking at least CVS server for a funny reason, (in my case,
    suitable directories for checking are /, /usr, /var, /home).

    I suspect the culprit is the changes to fs/namei.c in the first pre8,
    marked with the "ENOENT is definitely wrong" comment, missing the
    properties of the mount points, but I currently have no time to chase
    dentries :)
