In general, no. It might work in the special case where nothing
on the filesystem is ever moved or removed, and no hard links are
As a simple example, suppose I have directories foo and foo/bar,
and file foo/baz, with i(foo) == 15, i(foo/baz) == 20, and
i(foo/bar) == 25, satisfying your criterion. If I do
mv foo/baz foo/bar
(so baz is now foo/bar/baz), I will have i(foo/bar) == 25 and
i(foo/bar/baz) == 20.
