  gcc -Wdeprecated fails with: readdir_r is deprecated

Status in Snappy Launcher:
  Fix Released
Status in snap-confine package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in snap-confine source package in Xenial:

Bug description:

  The readdir_r function, which is a reentrant version of readdir() is
  deprecated in glibc. Some newer distributions (e.g. Ubuntu Yakkety)
  could no longer build snap-confine with this function. For more detail
  on readdir_r issue see the end of this bug description.

  [Test Case]

  The package doesn't FTBFS anymore and works as before. This feature is
  used by the LXD quirk code which is covered by this bug report and the
  same SRU request: https://bugs.launchpad.net/snap-confine/+bug/1613845

  [Regression Potential]

  * Minimal, snap-confine is a single-threaded application that doesn't
  use signal handlers with any non-trivial code that might be affected
  by the use of non-reentrant readdir().

  [Other Info]

  * This bug is a part of a major SRU that brings snap-confine in Ubuntu
  16.04 in line with the current upstream release 1.0.41.

  * snap-confine is technically an integral part of snapd which has an
  SRU exception and is allowed to introduce new features and take
  advantage of accelerated procedure. For more information see

  == # Pre-SRU bug description follows # ==

  Since Fedora 24 and Ubuntu 16.10 readdir_r is deprecated and causes
  build failures in strict packaging builds.
