Actually, you've always been able to do things like this.  For

        ln /proc/curproc/file /test

on a 3.X machine will produce a hard link to ln in / - it doesn't
work any more 'cos /proc/curproc/file is now a soft link. I presume
the same thing works with fdescfs.

This is actually one nice feature Linux procfs has: I once was
asked to look at a Linux box someone had broken into. They'd deleted
all the files in /var/log, but hadn't HUPed syslogd - so I just
hard linked them all back into place again. Not an every day use,
