First of all:
ls -i / # to see the mount-point dir problem.
*What* problem are you talking about? I see nothing wrong there.
The inum displayed by ls -i on a symlink is the same as the file
to which it points, or the inum of the current directory if the symlink
doesn't point to an existing file.
This is not a `bug' per se; it was an explicit design decision in 4.4.
