>Description:

sem_open(3) identifies semaphore.h as an include requirement for sem_open();
however, sem_open()'s oflag argument can take on values of O_CREAT or O_EXCL,
which are defined in fcntl.h.

>How-To-Repeat:

#include <err.h>
#include <semaphore.h>

...
	if (sem_open(name, O_CREAT, 0) < 0)
		err(-1, "sem_open: %s", name);
...

>Fix:

The fix is either to document the include dependency, or remove it, perhaps
via a nested include.  I don't know which is the right one from a standards
perspective.
