what is this plant

From a friend's garden she is reclaiming after 5 years of neglect. What is this, the root looks like it is trying to spread.

You'll get more and better responses if both photos are in the same thread -- because the posts will become separated and people will be confused. Yes, it can be done. Here's how:

If you use a photo-hosting site like Photobucket or flickr, you can put multiple images in a single post.

If your photos are on your computer or phone, you are limited to one image per post -- but although GW's software may balk (thinking you're trying to spam with consecutive, identical posts), you should be able to make the second post (despite the software's paranoia) by changing the text in the Subject of Posting box.

Except leeks don't have those long brown rhizomes connecting the plants.

Does it smell oniony?

Yes, it smells oniony.
Also, the small patch has been undisturbed in her garden for the last 5 years, she is just getting back to reclaiming that garden!
