Interesting, I think I got confused by the fact that all the diskfs-
based filesystems in hurd currently with diskfs_shortcut_symlink set do 
support symlinks, and those where that variable is not set (only fatfs, 
IIRC) do not support symlinks.

I've reverted the commit, and going to propose a better (I hope) 
solution for this.
