I would rather keep the entire if (nd->flags & LOOKUP_MAGICLINK_JUMPED)
out of the get_link(). If you want to generate some error if
nd_jump_link() has been called, just do it right there. The fewer
pieces of state need to be carried around, the better...

And as for opening them... Why would you need full open_flags in there?
Details, please...
