    Linux: Only use automount for volume roots
    As long as we avoid using directory aliases when crossing
    a mount point (at the volume root), we should always get
    to a given non root directory with the same dentry.
    The mechanism added by commit de381aa0 ("Linux: Make dir
    dentry aliases act like symlinks") is therefore only really
    necessary for a volume root.
    With kernel 4.2 it is not possible to tweak the "total link
    count", resulting in ELOOP errors when looking up a path
    with 40 or more directories that are being looked up for
    the first time.  With this change, only mountpoints will
    count against the limit.
