Subject[PATCH v2 2/4] Add fchmodat4(), a new syscall
Date
From
man 3p says that fchmodat() takes a flags argument, but the Linux
syscall does not. There doesn't appear to be a good userspace
workaround for this issue but the implementation in the kernel is pretty
straight-forward. The specific use case where the missing flags came up
was WRT a fuse filesystem implemenation, but the functionality is pretty
generic so I'm assuming there would be other use cases.
