As mentioned before, the pre-existing problem here is that the disk
chain will be reported as broken in case root doesn't have access to the
folder the file is in (for example).  Could we somehow pass a function
or seclabel to fallback to (from the driver)?  Just a hypothetical
question, no need to fix that in this series.

yeah, right, I will try to resolve it in separate patch.

      if (!(*canonical = canonicalize_file_name(combined))) {
                               _("Can't canonicalize path '%s'"), path);

This doesn't cope with the functionality, probably missed it when
reworking the function.

no need to have this variable, you can use bokenFile all the way
(probably leftover before some rework).

ACK with those two things fixed.  Both this and the previous (I forgot
to mention it there) should go in after 1.1.1 release.  Even though it
fixes an error, it mainly prepares the field for other patches and I'd
rather wait with this.  Don't hesitate to disagree though, we can
discuss that on IRC with other in case there's huge need for that.


Thanks for the review. I will send a v3 version with these fixed
