Subject[PATCH v2] UAPI: move RENAME_* definitions to separated file
Date
Discussion:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20180702084622.GA15274@yury-thinkpad/

Although RENAME_* macros are exposed in kernel headers, they are not
used by glibc. That's because linux/fs.h which hosts RENAME_* is
considered unsuitable by glibc developers:

As Florian Weimer wrote:

In this patch RENAME_* is removed to a separated header file that
conforms the standards and therefore is suitable for inclusion by glibc.

v2:
- rename dedicated file to 'rename-flags.h', as requested by Florian.
