There is an updated package that can be used for testing with available

fix

Direct link to supermin package for amd64/Xenial systems:

https://launchpad.net/~niveditasinghvi/+archive/ubuntu/supermin-symlink-
fix/+files/supermin_5.1.14-2ubuntu2~test_amd64.deb

The fix for the symlink breakage is available in upstream v5.1.18 of supermin.
The latest upstream version, 5.1.19, has been picked up for the Bionic
release of Ubuntu, and testing has been successful there.

This backports 2 fixes from later (post-5.1.14 Xenial) supermin
versions:

1. "ext2: Create symlinks properly (RHBZ#1470157)"
   
https://github.com/libguestfs/supermin/commit/158854e3ba4be7f6b8d81f662ddad98358ede1de

2. "ext2: Don't load whole files into memory when copying to the applianc…"
   
https://github.com/libguestfs/supermin/commit/f5a3deef588759c49dc862427a265aced612002d

to best integrate the symlink fix.

Note that there are the following updates to ext2fs-c.c file between the 
5.1.14 (Xenial) version and 5.1.19 (Bionic):

* ext2: Create symlinks properly (RHBZ#1470157)
- Use AC_HEADER_MAJOR to find definitions of major, minor, makedev
- Include <sys/sysmacros.h> for major()/minor()
* ext2: Don't load whole files into memory when copying to the appliance 
(RHBZ#1113065)
- ext2: fix printf formatters
- ext2: check for needed block size

I'd appreciate any testing feedback, issues on the package for testing
listed above.
