The renaming has no safeguards. If the user has permission to rewrite file names, the command will perform the action without any questions. For example, the result can be quite drastic when the command is run as root in the /lib directory. Always make a backup before running the command, unless you truly know what you are doing.
The linrename command is part of the util-linux package and is available from ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/util-linux/.
