OK. XFS could use it.

[PATCH 3/3] lutimesat: actual syscall and wire-up on i386

lutimesat(2) does everything futimesat(2) does except it doesn't follow
symlinks. It could be used by tar(1) and cp(1).

FreeBSD and NetBSD have lutimes(2) which can be emulated by C library.

lutimesat(2) accepts "struct timespec" which means timestamps with nanosecond
granularity. Tested on XFS which has nanosecond timestamps on-disk.

Changes to do_utimes() which is used by all existing utime* syscalls pass
LTP utime tests.

Closes http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4433
