 /rpm-dropbox/commit/?id=6ca3042c240bcecd656367d650e54be3a133f5ba patch].

 refusal to create hard links was a new feature in new kernel (3.6 and
 later), which returns EPERM where the target is owned by another, was
 avoided with
 echo 0 > /proc/sys/fs/protected_hardlinks
 and this has been changed in /etc/sysctl.d/10-link-restrictions.conf

 olpc-os-builder no longer fails on the repodata fetch.

 but a more correct solution may be to use symlinks instead of hard links,
 and change the method by which the last modification time is determined.
