    LINUX: Do not lookup immediately recursive mtpts
    On Linux, having a mountpoint in a volume root that points to the same
    volume can cause serious problems. By 'immediately recursive', I mean
    a situation like the following:
    fs mkm mtpt vol
    fs mkm mtpt/mtpt vol
    If there are multiple dentry aliases for the directory (which is
    possible if the directory is a mountpoint), an 'rmdir' on the
    recursive mountpoint can cause the client to deadlock. Since the
    'rmdir' code path in Linux locks the parent directory inode to perform
    the rmdir, and locks the child directory inode after performing a
    couple of sanity checks. For an immediately recursive mountpoint,
    these two inodes are the same, and so we will deadlock.
