An option to disable this would be really nice.

I have kernel sources in a bk repo, and some kernels built from these
in grub.conf.

Whenever hardlink runs, I guess it's hardlinking with the files in the
bk repo, which are read-only (seems to be only Makefiles), and
changing them to rw-r--r--. This causes bk to complain.

Or is there something I could do to make this problem go away?

Thanks -- Andy
