--- Comment #1 from Arnout Vandecappelle <arnout at mind.be> ---
I was not able to reproduce the issue with the given config. The executables
are all hardlinked with eachother in both versions.

Are you sure you don't have some post-image script that clones the hardlinks?

I suspected patchelf as a potential culprit, but it does open(fileName, O_TRUNC
| O_WRONLY) which should preserve hardlinks (as proven by bug 11031).

Can you check if the copies are made during the install of git itself, or
during the target-finalize step, or maybe even during rootfs generation?
