Because the way I've implemented directory object it's not fully abstract. It
needs to have a special case for symlinks lookups.

Also I will need that for NtQueryDirectoryObject as it have to return object
type name. I suppose I could compare obj->ops but that means they won't be
static anymore and will have to be visible outside the file where they are
