From: "J. Bruce Fields" <bfields@redhat.com>

Currently if d_splice_alias finds a directory with an alias that is not
IS_ROOT or not DCACHE_DISCONNECTED, it creates a duplicate directory.

Duplicate directory dentries are unacceptable; it is better just to
error out.

(In the case of a local filesystem the most likely case is filesystem
corruption: for example, perhaps two directories point to the same child
directory, and the other parent has already been found and cached.)

Note that distributed filesystems may encounter this case in normal
operation if a remote host moves a directory to a location different
from the one we last cached in the dcache.  For that reason, such
filesystems should instead use d_materialise_unique, which tries to move
the old directory alias to the right place instead of erroring out.
