Previously, I mentioned that I'm working on chmod -h, as well as chmod -R
- -L/-H/-P, but those are taking a bit longer than I thought (it requires
developing and testing on BSD to ensure it works, while still making sure
that behavior is sane on Linux which lacks lchmod).  So I'm no longer
shooting to have that complete in time for 8.1.

I'm still trying to look into the FreeBSD 7.2 failures on linkat, rename,
and utimens.  That might be something we can knock out easily enough in
time for 8.1.
