Re: [PATCH] POSIX extended API set 2

   Date: Sat, 10 Nov 2012 07:44:18 +0100
   From: (Emmanuel Dreyfus)

   This patch implementes openat(2), mkdirat(2), mknodat(2), mkfifoat(2)
   fchmodat(2) and fchownat(2), and adds test cases for the new system

I know this is a bike shed, and I'm sorry to be the one to bring it
up, but can we use the names chmodat, chownat, &c., for our native
system calls, and just use libc aliases or _BLAH_SOURCE nonsense or
something for the ridiculous `f' prefix on fchmodat, fchownat, &c.?

I guess it's too late to fix the standard, but blahhhhh...
