As pointed out in the article, this symlink content scanning is completely unnecessary bloat, whos functionality can be accomplished through other functionality already available in the kernel.
@hostname Boot-time symlink or bind mount
@mach Boot-time symlink or bind mount
@os Boot-time symlink or bind mount
@uid Private namespaces
I built a cluster a few years back that booted 36 completely diskless nodes off a single shared readonly NFS root. This involved about 5 lines of bindmounting and tmpfs, along with commenting out fsck checks and suchnot. That cluster is still operational, sitting in a room about 10 yards away. :)
The problem has already been solved. Please, no more bloat!
