lstat_cache: guard against full match of length of 'name' parameter
longest_path_match() in symlinks.c does exactly what it's name says, but in some cases that match can be too long, since the has_*_leading_path() functions assumes that the match will newer be as long as the name string given to the function. fix this by adding an extra if test which checks if the match length is equal to the 'len' parameter.
