Synopsis: wrong errno from open( , O_NOFOLLOW, )

The conclusion is that we like precision (EFTYPE) better than strict
conformance when strict conformance is misguided (ELOOP). Several people
I've talked to (including but not limited to Joerg) have been in favor
and nobody's disagreed. However, it hasn't been hashed out in full glory
on tech-kern; if anyone (whether the original submitter or someone coming
across this later) cares deeply please bring it up there.
