Use prerequisite tags to skip tests that depend on symbolic links
Many tests depend on that symbolic links work. This introduces a check that sets the prerequisite tag SYMLINKS if the file system supports symbolic links. Since so many tests have to check for this prerequisite, we do the check in test-lib.sh, so that we don't need to repeat the test in many scripts. To check for 'ln -s' failures, you can use a FAT partition on Linux: $ mkdosfs -C git-on-fat 1000000 $ sudo mount -o loop,uid=j6t,gid=users,shortname=winnt git-on-fat /mnt Clone git to /mnt and $ GIT_SKIP_TESTS='t0001.1[34] t0010 t1301 t403[34] t4129.[47] t5701.7 t7701.3 t9100 t9101.26 t9119 t9124.[67] t9200.10 t9600.6' \ make test (These additionally skipped tests depend on POSIX permissions that FAT on Linux does not provide.)
