> With permissions enabled, the permission check in {{FSNamesystem#delete}} will incorrectly
throw an UnresolvedLinkException if the path contains a symlink. This leads to FileContext
resolving the symlink and instead deleting the link target.
> The correct check is to see if the user has write permissions on the parent directory
of the symlink, e.g.
> {noformat}
> -> % ls -ld symtest
> drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 26 14:12 symtest
> -> % ls -l symtest
> total 12
> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 Apr 26 14:12 link -> target
> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Apr 26 14:11 target
> -> % rm -f symtest/link
> rm: cannot remove `symtest/link': Permission denied
> -> % sudo chown andrew symtest
> -> % rm -f symtest/link       
> -> % 
> {noformat}
