XOPEN Requirements for dirent.h
A few weeks ago I noted that the Hurd headers for the GNU C library
seem to not follow the X/Open specifications with respect to the
<dirent.h> header file.
Recall: Under Linux the structure "dirent" contains a field called
"d_ino", which might be aliased as "d_fileno", while the Hurd headers
do just the opposite.
I was able to locate an on-line copy of the X/Open UNIX specification
"The file 'dirent.h' [...] defines the structure dirent which includes
the following members:
ino_t d_ino file serial number
char d_name name of entry"
Although my request for clarification to the glibc-bugs list did not
yield any response, I think this citation is enough to indicate that
we should modify the Hurd header files to comply.
