comment Why hard links not allowed to directories in UNIX/Linux
@psusi mkdir -p a/b; nocheckln c a; mv c a/b; -- the nocheckln there is a theoretical ln that doesnt check for directory args, and just passes to link, and because no cycle is made, we are all good in creating 'c'. then we move 'c' into 'a/b', and a cycle is created from a/b/c -> a/ -- checking in link() is not good enough
