R. David Murray added the comment:

I agree with Antoine.  It seems to me that it is very important to the 
semantics of rollover that the rename be atomic, even if we ignore the issue of 
existing other readers.  If it were not atomic, you might end up with lost log 
messages.  So I don't think there is anything to do here: you just can't use 
rollover on a filesystem that doesn't support atomic rename.

I'll leave it Vinay to close the issue if he agrees with us.
