Description Florian Weimer 2017-07-15 12:49:26 EDT
Bug 1330705 added support for O_TMPFILE in the open/openat implementations.  However, due to lack of kernel support at the time, the macro was not added to the install header files.

Now that O_TMPFILE kernel support is under consideration, we should considering defining O_TMPFILE, so that applications can use it.

We need to undo the changes to our patches which added __O_TMPFILE instead of O_TMPFILE, but this should be straightforward, so I'm setting the Patch keyword.
