Read the regression test. In particular:
* IEEE 1003.1 second ed. 188.8.131.52:
* If the pathname refers to a directory, it may also have
* one or more trailing slashes. Multiple successive slashes
* are considered to be the same as one slash.
Since the pathname argument to mkdir(2) and rmdir(2) refer to a directory,
trailing /s must be allowed.
