fchownat.c   [plain text]

/* This function serves as replacement for a missing fchownat function,
   as well as a work around for the fchownat bug in glibc-2.4:
   when the buggy fchownat-with-AT_SYMLINK_NOFOLLOW operates on a symlink, it
   mistakenly affects the symlink referent, rather than the symlink itself.
