upspinfs: corrects link size handling Correctly reports the symlink size as the size of the content printed out by Readlink. Old code reported size 0 for symlinks. This is correct per upspin specification, but not correct when upspin is viewed through a filesystem mount. Reporting incorrect size led to weird artifacts when using git on top of upspinfs, as git would interpret file size of 0 as file content removal, and would generate spurious diffs. Fixes #619.

Upspin is an experimental project to build a framework for naming and sharing files and other data securely, uniformly, and globally: a global name system of sorts.
It is not a file system, but a set of protocols and reference implementations that can be used to join things like file systems and other storage services to the name space.
Performance is not a primary goal. Uniformity and security are.
Upspin is not an official Google product.
Upspin has rough edges, and is not yet suitable for non-technical users.
