This question is probably answered somwhere in forum but sorry I can't find any sight of it

Why is there circulated link in /boot that keeps pointing to boot ?

Thanks

It's just a symlink within /boot that points to the current directory.
If you follow it, then you've arrived at the same place. If you follow it again (and again), then you are probably silly ;)

I assume it's there in case someone uses a separate partition for boot but then mistakenly points grub at /boot/kernel... when they should have just used /kernel...
