The hell you have. Let me spell it out for you:

1) You _still_ have not posted the analysis of changes it causes, let alone
explained why they are the right thing to do.

2) You are still doing that for each symlink, no matter where in the path
it might be. Do (1) and you'll see why it is a BS.

3) You have not bothered to explain why e.g. stat(2) should fail on such
symlinks. Nevermind figuring out which syscalls need that and which do
not. Again, (1) would be the starting point required for the rest. And
it is needed to decide how to deal with these checks. Really.
