Could you elaborate on this one a bit?

I assume that there are rules that once i_nlink hits 0, it never goes
back up again. It seems that a whole bunch (if not all) of the
individual filesystems do things to it. Is it really necessary to go
into all of those looking for the places that i_nlink hits 0? Seems
like it would be an awful lot of patching.
