Sure.  This uses your older patch, not the newer gnulib one.

The test case, by the way, is "./du ../../cu*", where the
globbing pattern expands to 51 directories, each a copy of coreutils,
with several hard links because many are git clones of each other.

Yes; but ouch!  That's jumping into the fire!  I suspect it's even less
likely to work on weird architectures.  I'd rather stay in the frying pan.
