Subject[PATCH] fs: add RWF_APPEND
Date
This is the per-I/O equivalent of O_APPEND to support atomic append
operations on any open file.

On Linux, if a file is opened with O_APPEND, pwrite() ignores the offset
and always appends data to the end of the file. RWF_APPEND enables
atomic append and pwrite() with offset on a single file descriptor.
