    LINUX: Avoid symlink-y resolution limits
    Implementing the d_automount or follow_link function pointers for our
    directories means that we can hit symlink resolution limits during
    lookup, since we look like a "symlink". We can hit these limits pretty
    easily if there are just too many directories in the lookup path.
    Our pseudo-symlink directories cannot contribute to an infinite
    resolution loop, since our destination is always an actual directory,
    not a symlink that will result in more redirection. So, decrement the
    total_link_count counter when our d_automount or follow_link code is
    reached, so we do not contribute to hitting the max resolution limit.
    Note that this is not related to recursive symlink lookup (link_count)
    but only to the iterative symlink limit (total_link_count). Our
    lookups are not recursive here, and we are not causing more recursive
    lookups like a normal text-based symlink would do.
