Description

From Frank B. @ Oracle:

Hey Garrett,

you may want to do the OpenAFS folks the same favour as we did via
although I can not claim I know about openAFS on illumos, you may want to
ask them here:

http://lists.openafs.org/mailman/listinfo/port-solaris

I filed this bug for them and Roger fixed it:

see:

http://lists.openafs.org/pipermail/port-solaris/2010-November/thread.html
http://lists.openafs.org/pipermail/port-solaris/2010-December/thread.html

we "broke" their syscall number abuse in build 135 with:

this affects ON and the solaris 10 brand btw.

cheers

Just in case it matters in the future, it would be good to know whether all of the *at vectors were relocated for the fix, or just unlinkat.

From the release of Solaris 11, it looks like just unlinkat was moved (it was moved from 65 to 76). There are several other differences in the syscall numbers that appear to be unrelated to this... but that appears to be the only difference for the *at calls.

Any chance this could be moved in illumos?

I'd like to go ahead and do this. I'm going to go ahead and assign it to myself.
