[Libguestfs] [PATCH 0/2] New API: case_sensitive_path



This is the previously controversial 1/3 patch, split into two parts.

The first patch contains these changes from last time:

 - set errno = 0 before readdir, and check for errors after

 - check for other errors from the chdir call which weren't ENOTDIR

 - the documentation is clarified about when you might use this function

 - more comprehensive tests, including the corner cases Matt mentioned.

The second patch changes the chdir(2) implementation to use openat/
fdopendir.  I'm not convinced that this is a good thing since the
chdir implementation is much clearer to understand, and the chance of
the daemon ever becoming multithreaded is next to nil.

Rich.
