Not a problem (actually, I'd done that several commits later when I was
rewriting the expression anyway). Folded the following into it now:

diff --git a/fs/namei.c b/fs/namei.c
index e47b376cf442..79f06be7f5d4 100644
--- a/fs/namei.c
+++ b/fs/namei.c
@@ -1839,8 +1839,8 @@ static inline int step_into(struct nameidata *nd, struct path *path,
int flags, struct inode *inode, unsigned seq)
{
if (likely(!d_is_symlink(path->dentry)) ||
- !(flags & WALK_FOLLOW || nd->flags & LOOKUP_FOLLOW) ||
- flags & WALK_NOFOLLOW) {
+ !((flags & WALK_FOLLOW) || (nd->flags & LOOKUP_FOLLOW)) ||
+ (flags & WALK_NOFOLLOW)) {
/* not a symlink or should not follow */
path_to_nameidata(path, nd);
nd->inode = inode;
