Bug #2543: man rmdir(2) : add EINVAL to the error section

Author: jorisgio
Status: Closed
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

rmdir can return EINVAL if the directory is a mount point :

See sys/kern/vfs_syscalls.c:3997

         * Do not allow directories representing mount points to be
         * deleted, even if empty.  Check write perms on mount point
         * in case the vnode is aliased (aka nullfs).
        if (nd->nl_nch.ncp->nc_flag & (NCF_ISMOUNTPT))
                return (EINVAL);
