UFS and POSIX test suite


There is a POSIX test suite here:

I intentend to use it to hunt bugs for NetBSD FUSE. Without any
surprise, there are a lot of failures, but I am a it surprised to see
that NetBSD UFS fails the same tests most of the time.

To give an exaample, the script detects that when an unprivilegied user
attempts to set the setGID bit, it should be cleared, while NetBSD UFS
returns EPERM.

And just clearing the bit indeed seems to be mandated by POSIX:

Opinions? Do we have bugs to fix here? Anyone already gave it a try?
