Minor nit - the first check probably wants unlikely() more than the
second one; it's probably noise anyway, but most of the symlinks
traversed are not going to be procfs ones, so you get test + branch
taken most of the time.

OTOH, that just might compile into
fetch nd->flags
and with LOOKUP_MAGICLINK_JUMPED | LOOKUP_NO_MAGICLINKS
compare with the same constant
unlikely branch when equal

Anyway, that's no more than a minor nit and can be dealt with later (if
at all)
