Apologies for the report.  Looks like mkdir(2) man page is maintained by man-pages project, I will report it there.  Thanks.

It is possible for mkdir(2) to return EINVAL in certain circumstances. However, the man page mkdir(2) doesn't mention that.

I am hitting it on overlayfs. Other instances reported:

So, it needs to be documented in man page for mkdir(2).
