> The {{O_RDONLY}} / {{O_WRONLY}} / {{O_RDWR}} macros in {{fcntl.h}} are not a bitmask;
they are an enum stored in the low bits of the flag word.  The proper way to use them is
> {code}
> if ((flags & O_ACCMODE) == O_RDONLY)
> {code}
> rather than
> {code}
> if ((flags & O_RDONLY) == 0)
> {code}
> There are many examples of this misuse in {{hdfs.c}}.
> As a result of this incorrect testing, erroneous code may be accepted without error and
correct code might not work correctly.
