my understanding is that the interpretation of '/' at the end of a
pathname has differed between BSD and SysV; BSD has traditionally
interpreted it as the same as 'foo/.' while at least some SysV-based
systems have interpreted it as the same as 'foo'.

If linux allows mkdir("/tmp/foo/") to succeed, then our emulation
needs to, as well.
