Actually i cared about the performance aspect. If there are shadowed
directories, which contain _many_ entries and the user simply looks up
that directory in shadowfs, shadowfs would have to first read _all_
the directory entries of _all_ of the underlying directories just to
provide the 100% right st_nlink number.
