question: is it ok if the st_nlink member of struct stat of virtual
directory nodes in Shadowfs is higher then the number of nodes which
are actually in that virtual directory?
It would be much overhead if Shadowfs would have to do a dir_readdir()
on all the underlying directories just to be able to rule out
duplicate names and therefore provide the correct st_nlink number of a
looked up virtual directory node.
