Just upgraded to 3.6 from 3.5, and now some of my kernel build scripts
are throwing "permission denied" errors.  Apparently symlinks are
broken somehow?

  # id
  uid=0(root) gid=0(root)
groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel),11(floppy),20(dialout),26(tape),27(video)

  # ls -l /scratch_space/linux
  drwxr-xr-x 24 nbowler eng 4096 2012-10-03 13:41 /scratch_space/linux

  # readlink /scratch_space/linux-2.6
  linux

  # cd /scratch_space/linux
  # pwd
  /scratch_space/linux

  # cd /scratch_space/linux-2.6
  cd: permission denied: /scratch_space/linux-2.6

WTF?  3.5 is fine.  I will try to bisect this later, but I figured I'd
throw this out there now in case anyone has any ideas...

Cheers,
