    What we want is no directed cycles. That is A is the parent of B is the
    parent of C is the parent of A. We don't care about A is the parent of
    B is the parent of C; A is the parent of B is the parent of C.

    OK, here's a random idea that just popped into my head, and to which
    I've given little thought (read: none whatsoever), and may be the
    stupidest idea ever proposed on LKML, but thought I would just toss it
    out to see if it could stimulate someone to come up with something
    better (read: sane): Conceptually, foo/.... is just a symlink to
    /meta/[filesystem]/[inode of foo].

    And a question: is it feasible to store, for each inode, its parent(s),
    instead of just the hard link count?
