Subject: [RFC & PATCH] Solaris 8: ENOSYS when mkdir applied to automount.
Date: Wed, 01 Feb 2006 16:39:22 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <24768.1138840762@lotus.CS.Berkeley.EDU> (raw)

I guess our home directories recently were changed from symlinks
to autmounts.  Solaris 8's mkdir(2) returns ENOSYS when applied
to these, breaking safe_create_leading_directories.  I don't
know if ENOSYS is available everywhere, or if this odd behavior
is appropriate everywhere.

This works for me, but should I wrap mkdir for bizarre behavior
by adding a compat/gitmkdir.c?
