Al, the patch itself looks good, thanks.

However, if this is applied at the start of the series it could
allow tests to easily cause a stack overflow during a bisection (I
don't think users would see a kernel in the middle of the series).

Could this be converted over to checking nd->link_count along with
the [02/24] patch until closer to the end of the series when the
recursion has been removed?

It isn't fatal if that doesn't happen, since this whole series should
land at one time and the chance of testing Lustre symlinks right
in the middle of the series is low, just something I thought when
reviewing the patch.

Cheers, Andreas
