APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If applications were already complied with 64bit O_NOFOLLOW
    flag ■ O_NOFOLLOW was subsequently converted to 32 bit  with
    open64x & open64xat then the changes to convert O_NOFOLLOW
    have no effect without recompilation of those applications.
    We can avoid the recompilation of those applications by
    changing the filesystem code.
    
    Note: All applications which uses O_NOFOLLOW with other open
    subroutines need recompilation of applications.
