I don't know what it does with hard-linked directories (but don't use
hard-linked directories!).

Compare the performance to a "find . -size 1024" >/dev/null

The find is fetching as much inode and name space data but shouldn't be
doing any link work.

I just tried this on the same 3TB volume as the du and I get almost identical results, ~90 minutes.
