Package: src:glibc
Version: 2.28-10

gnulib has added emilation for lchmod/fchmodat.  Since this is a
run-time test, binaries built against glibc with these patches will
not work correctly on older glibc version.  (glibc upstream did not
want symbol version markup for this change.)

The backport consists of these patches:

    support: Add the xlstat function

    Linux: Add io/tst-o_path-locks test
    The O_PATH-based fchmodat emulation will rely on the fact that closing
    an O_PATH descriptor never releases POSIX advisory locks, so this
    commit adds a test case for this behavior.

    io: Implement lchmod using fchmodat [BZ #14578]

commit 752dd17443e55a4535cb9e6baa4e550ede383540

    Linux: Emulate fchmodat with AT_SYMLINK_NOFOLLOW using O_PATH [BZ #14578]
    /proc/self/fd files are special and chmod on O_PATH descriptors
    in that directory operates on the symbolic link itself (like lchmod).

    io: Add io/tst-lchmod covering lchmod and fchmodat
