None of the special translators like /hurd/symlink as listed in
<hurd/paths.h> should be shown by such user applications (unless maybe the
user requested it).  Instead, the POSIX or traditional UNIX counterparts
should be shown.

/* Standard translators for special node types.
   These pathnames are used by the C library.
   UFS and perhaps other filesystems short-circuit these translators.  */
#define _HURD_SYMLINK   _HURD "symlink" /* S_IFLNK */
#define _HURD_CHRDEV    _HURD "chrdev" /* S_IFCHR */
#define _HURD_BLKDEV    _HURD "blkdev" /* S_IFBLK */
#define _HURD_FIFO      _HURD "fifo" /* S_IFIFO */
#define _HURD_IFSOCK    _HURD "ifsock" /* S_IFSOCK */
