    Yes, I know. No doubt you are able to fix that by reading that bit
    before calling __vfs_follow_link(). It will be repaired fully
    automatically tomorrow or the day after when __vfs_follow_link()
    disappears altogether.

    But that is the microscopic criticism. I was more interested in
    hearing comments on the global setup.
