[rdiff-backup-users] [PATCH] AFS hardlink test

Hi Ben and rdiff-backup-users,

Please find the attached patch to fix hardlink detection for AFS.  AFS
does not support hard linking over directories, only within them;
rdiff-backup's test tries to link a file in the same directory, which
will pass, but will later fail when it tries to create hard links.
This patch changes the behavior of the hard link test to attempt to
hard link across a directory.

This patch was applied to Debian's packaging of rdiff-backup to close
#260018 [1].  It was written for 0.13.4, but looks like it will apply
cleanly to CVS.
