    That patch was an abortion. Adding a config option for behavior like
    this is totally bogus, and the only reason for that config option was
    that sysfs did silly things.

    It's only in -next, though, I was assuming that the whole "Kill nlink
    counting" commit never makes it to me. Because I won't take it.

    I outlined how the counting could easily be done without actually
    having to maintain an explicit count in the sysfs.

    Or we should just keep doing the counting.
