Thanks. I have investigated the issue and could use some advice from a
hurd expert.

The build itself is fine, but there are failures during the execution of
the test suite on hurd.

Using the porterbox, I have found that the failing tests are all due to
the same issue.

The problem is that a call to rename() fails (returns negative value)
and errno is set to EAGAIN. This does not happen on the other
architectures. If I insert a loop that repeats the call to rename()
until it would succeed that does not work - that only results in that
the execution get stuck in the loop.

Under what conditions does hurd return EAGAIN from rename() and what
should the code do to get out of this situation?
