:As part of implementing the at family of syscalls (openat(),
:fstatat(), ...), I propose to put the common code handling the file
:descriptor argument in the namecache as shown in the patch below.
Looks pretty good but what is nl_atfp used for? The fp has to be
held anyway, I know, but I think I'd rather it be done explicitly
in the system calls like it is already.
