It shouldn't make any difference to startup - we should still be
checking errors and failing the init if we're failing to add links, 
this isn't something that's likely to randomly break on a particular
boot, it's more something that indicates nobody bothered testing.

It's certainly totally inappropriate for an "urgent" bugfix.
