Looks nice.  I infer that the previous version was bugged because of
the possibility of having the same inode on different devices; is that

Is it worth commenting that the use of dev+ino (as opposed to
pathname) avoids traversing hard links (notably . and ..) multiple
times, or is that too obvious?
