[Libguestfs] [nbdkit PATCH 5/8] cow, cache: Better mkostemp fallback



Haiku is seriously behind in adding support for atomic CLOEXEC; in
2018, we added fallback support since it does not yet provide mkostemp
as requested by an upcoming POSIX addition [1].  However, the fallback
we added is rather brain-dead - if mkstemp() fails, we blindly call
fcntl(-1) (which probably changes the errno later reported against
"mkostemp: %s: %m"); and although it is historically unlikely that any
other bits will be set, F_SETFD should be used in a read-modify-write
pattern rather than a blind overwrite pattern.

The fact that our fallback is non-atomic is not a problem in practice,
since we are only using this code during .load (where we are still
more-or-less single-threaded), rather than while another thread may be
actively inside a plugin (such as sh) using fork().
