On a not-entirely-unrelated note, I wonder if
any of the POSIX experts around know whether POSIX
specifies an errno value for this call:
open("/", O_WRONLY | O_EXCL | O_CREAT, 0777)
I ran into this puzzler back when I was trying to optimize
the restore sequence for libarchive. As near as I've
been able to tell, POSIX is ambiguous here: It
requires EISDIR for open(O_WRONLY) on a dir and EEXIST
for open(O_EXCL | O_CREAT) on an existing item but
without any clear guidance on which of those takes
priority in this case.
Anyone think they know the answer?
