  Modified files:
    lib/libc/sys         open.2 
  Prefer "to be modified" over "to be opened for writing".
  This is quite tricky situation, because we allow to open a file with
  O_RDONLY|O_TRUNC. O_TRUNC modifies a file, but we actually don't open
  it for writing. EISDIR is also returned when we try to open a directory
  O_RDONLY|O_TRUNC, which is correct.
  POSIX says that "The result of using O_TRUNC with O_RDONLY is undefined.",
  we choose to accept it (Solaris did the same), that's why "to be modified"
  seems more accurate to me.
