I'm tracking these issues as Red Hat bz 445757. I've got a patch which
removes the restriction of 20 inodes being accessed in one syscall which
I've floated to Al Viro to see what he thinks. Since the restriction is
gone we won't lose names and thus it removes these messages altogether.
You are not forgotten!
