I found a better way to handle this:

Matthew or Bob, would you please confirm that this detects the
problem and skips the test?

[patch snipped]

Yes, that works (causes the test to be skipped). My only comment is I think I would like to see a more detailed message, maybe 'this test is being skipped because your kernel's rename() is buggy and does not permit a directory to be renamed onto an existing directory'.

And FYI dir2dir passes with your patch elsewhere in this thread. :-) Thanks!
