Bug#245322: dpkg: Can't handle installing packages with a diverted hardlink

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.20
Severity: normal

I've got this on my system:

root@nevyn:/home/drow# dpkg-divert --list|grep mk
local diversion of /sbin/mkreiserfs to /sbin/mkreiserfs.distrib
local diversion of /sbin/mkfs.reiserfs to /sbin/mkfs.reiserfs.distrib

When I try to update reiserfs, I get:
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/reiserfsprogs_1%3a3.6.14-3_i386.deb (--unpack):
 error creating hard link `./sbin/mkreiserfs': No such file or directory

The package has both in it, but dpkg doesn't account for the renamed

-rwxr-xr-x root/root    141644 2004-04-20 05:37:57 ./sbin/mkfs.reiserfs
hrwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2004-04-20 05:37:57 ./sbin/mkreiserfs link to ./sbin/mkfs.reiserfs
