There is vunify which is part of util-vserver package. What is better for general usage is Sam's unify-dirs script. It is located at http://mirrors.paul.sladen.org/sam.vilain.net/vserver/unify-dirs.
Just use this without the -l or -i options and it will just do hard links, which is what you want for the current implementation of cow links.
