Hi Doug,

My test don't have this issue. The routine is something as below:

I start three opens without O_EXCL, wait 30s each, and open with
O_EXCL|O_NONBLOCK, it failed with EBUSY.
And I also call myopen with/without O_EXCL many times in background at
the same time, and the test is passed. I don't know why it failed in
your test.

Usage: myopen [-e][-n][-d delay] -f file
-e: exclude
-n: nonblock
-d: delay N seconds and then close.
