Don't see any reason not to allow a symlink here, trivial patch attached.

> When customer wants to bump up log level of a cassandra class, here is the procedure
they follow:
> # Add the class name and log level to log4j-server.properties into a revision identified
directory.
> # The new directory is then symbolically linked to the location where cassandra looks
for that directory.
> However cassandra and it's log4j continue to watch the old location 
> The reason for this AbstractCassandraDaemon.initLog4j() uses this 
> configFileName = new File(configLocation.toURI()).getCanonicalPath();
> The customer believes if we change that to the following, this will allow the symlink
to work properly.
> configFileName = new File(configLocation.toURI()).getPath();
> If it were possible to add a configuration that would invoke this change on "True" that
would be ideal.  Or find another method to allow hotfixing the log4j changes.
