It appears to be the new syscall season, and I'm afraid I've delayed
you just long enough for two or three more to interpose themselves
after sys_renameat2. If he agrees, I think that messiness is best
left to akpm, who I expect would adapt the patch according to what
has actually reached Linus by the time he's ready to send this in.
