This is not correct:
mkisofs records an anonymized variant ot the command line.
Some people from Debian who do not even understand their own privacy leak
issues (see most if not all patch files found on Debian) _believe_ that
there is an issue and apply an unneeded patch.
The result of this patch may be that future Solaris releases will not be
able to deal with zero sized hard links on ISO-9660 if created wth the
bastardized version of mkisofs.
