This is not a simple symlinking. I had, in the past manually done it to sdext. Ran ICS this way for ages, but CM10 brought boot loops. Android is not very tolerant of these schemes, as I said.
The result is that system dexes get placed in /cache/dalvik-cache. User dexes remain in /data/dalvik-cache, Apparently succeeds in CM11, not in Omni.
The alternative of re-partitioning the nand would be much more difficult and dangerous than simply assuring correct implementation.
