After looking at the kernel code, it seems that:

Ouch, so this whole thing has been a false alarm? Well, in some sense
that's a relief; in another sense I wonder whether we should undo some
of the recent Gnulib changes.

The changes are a net improvement I think since fewer interfaces are used.

I would remove the AT_NO_AUTOMOUNT parameters to fstatat() though,
since they're redundant it seems, and would only result in confusion
if the patch is applied to remove that flag from the fstatat(2) man page.
