    Hmm. It does sound like a reasonable assumption, though. Maybe spufs
    should be fixed to have an inode for all directories?

    A NULL d_inode means that something is a negative dentry, and a negative
    dentry shouldn't have children.

    Added a few ppc people to the cc.

    I'll pull the fix, but I really think it sounds like spufs is doing
    something wrong here.
