    Windows: foo.backup -> foo.backup too many symlinks
    In the case where an explicit mount point to a .backup volume is
    resolved from a .backup volume the cache manager refuses to evaluate
    the mount point target.  This is meant to address unwanted recursion
    in the directory tree searches.
    Change the error code to ERROR_TOO_MANY_SYMLINKS and propagate that
    error to the AFS redirector.  That will result in the application
    receiving STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED instead of
    The STATUS_REPARSE_POINT_NOT_RESOLVED error causes cmd.exe and
    powershell.exe to terminate recursive directory searches.
