      [PATCH] flags parameter for linkat · c04030e1
      Ulrich Drepper authored
      
      
      I'm currently at the POSIX meeting and one thing covered was the
      incompatibility of Linux's link() with the POSIX definition.  The name.
      Linux does not follow symlinks, POSIX requires it does.
      
      Even if somebody thinks this is a good default behavior we cannot change this
      because it would break the ABI.  But the fact remains that some application
      might want this behavior.
      
      We have one chance to help implementing this without breaking the behavior.
       For this we could use the new linkat interface which would need a new
      flags parameter.  If the new parameter is AT_SYMLINK_FOLLOW the new
      behavior could be invoked.
      
      I do not want to introduce such a patch now.  But we could add the
      parameter now, just don't use it.  The patch below would do this.  Can we
      get this late patch applied before the release more or less fixes the
      syscall API?

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
