Warnings can be too verbose, in case too many dirs affected, so they can
hide real errors. In opposite situation, i.e. no warnings at all, some
errors could be skipped. So this thing needs a proper fix, not just a

It can be kinda of two-passes mode, if -L is specified:
1st pass checks everything excepting type=link, in -L mode
2nd pass checks type=link only, in -P mode
And remember that both workaround and proper fix will make us very
different from any other *BSD.
