The comment above generic_readlink has this to say:

* A helper for ->readlink(). This should be used *ONLY* for symlinks that
* have ->follow_link() touching nd only in nd_set_link(). Using (or not
* using) it for any given inode is up to filesystem.
which appears, at least, to contradict what you are saying. I'll put it
on my list to look at again, but a straight substitution of
generic_readlink() does not work, so I'd prefer to leave it as it is for
the moment,
