[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH fstools 2/2] blockd: remove symlink linkpath file if it's a dir or link

From: Rafał Miłecki <rafal at milecki.pl>

Files like that can remain from using non-autofs mounting and can cause
mounting errors after switching to autofs:
blockd: failed to symlink /mnt/sda1->/tmp/run/blockd/sda1
