The kernel knows nothing of wildcards. No wildcard handling is ever done
in-kernel; it's all userspace. The answers are "no" and "no". Wildcards
are not supported, but "*" won't get rejected either. "*" is a valid
file name, after all. You just need to be careful with your escaping in
bash when you try to remove it :)
