I found a relic! :-)

Nocast.

kfree(nd_get_link(nd));

I am not sure right now, I would need to test; does someone know out of the box
whether other network filesystems (in particular SMBFS/CIFS) behave like NFS
and also return -EACCES rather than -EROFS?

"f/s" => branch, to follow unionfs terminiology.
