Description of problem:
sed on bind-mounted files fails in rename step. In previous versions this was fixed by using -c/--copy functionality which appears to have been removed in 4.2.1-4.
Bind mounts are used in stateless systems for persistent data.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. touch file1 file2
2. mount --bind file1 file2
3. echo "test" > file1
4. sed -i "s/test/fail/g" file2
sed: cannot rename ./sedfnZpvY: Device or resource busy
sed script completes.
As of 4.2.1-4, the -c/--copy options did not exist at all. Using them resulted in the printing of the help message. Using 4.2.1-5 from koji reintroduced the -c/--copy option support, but the above sed command still fails.
