If you're talking about hard links, there is no directionality. All
hard links are equivalent pointers to the same inode.
Symbolic links, on the other hand, are pointers from one filename to
another. A symbolic link in a chroot environment can't point outside of
it, because the target is interpreted relative to the chroot.
