I guess CODA has directory-level acl's. Then you can't have files
hardlinked from diffrent directores, since that would mean that the same
file had diffrent right depending on what directory use accessed it from.

(And it make it so much easier to write a fsck :)

Look for EXDEV (the errno that means "Cross-device link").
