maybe this: open("/some/dir", O_TMPFILE);
and this? open("/some/dir", O_TMPFILE|O_DIRECTORY);

The former would return a filehandle to a new anonymous file
somewhere on whatever filesystem backs the specified path. The
latter would do the same, except create an anonymous directory where
you could use "openat()" or something. Presumably "lsof" and "/proc"
should show either type of handle as referring to either "/some/
filesystem/" or "/some/filesystem/ (anonymous temp file)" or something.
