This says we fail on the first fcntl() failure, instead of trying other
fds in the set.  Granted, an fcntl() failure is probably the sign of a
bigger bug (such as closing an fd at the wrong point in time), so I
guess trying to go on doesn't make much sense once we already know we
are hosed.

I think I'll stick with it the way it is.  If fcntl() fails we might
have a tainted fd set so I think we should fail.

The alternative would be s/return 1/continue/, right? I think either way
is acceptable.

+                }

Do we want to allow the case where the caller asked for O_RDONLY, but
the set only has O_RDWR?  After all, the caller is getting a compatible
subset of what the set offers.

I don't see a problem with it.

I would require exact matches like you implemented, in order to prevent
damage if we ever had a bug that writes to a read-only file. I believe
it also makes the semantics clearer and the code simpler, while it
shouldn't make much of a difference for clients.


Alright, then I'll plan on requiring exact matches of access mode flags.
