<pinotree> hm, is it a known issue that open("somesymlink", O_RDONLY |
  O_NOFOLLOW) does not fail with ELOOP?
<youpi> pinotree: iirc there is code for it, maybe not the same behavior as
  on linux

<pinotree> the hurd issue is that O_NOFOLLOW seems broken on symlinks, and
  thus open(symlink, O_NOFOLLOW) doesn't fail with ELOOP
<youpi> I don't really see why it should fail
<youpi> since NOFOLLOW says not to follow the symlink
<pinotree> yeah, but you cannot open a symlink
<youpi> ah right ok
<youpi> interesting :)
