Yes, Florian asked me to put the openat2 definitions into a separate
header (openat2.h) so that it could be just copied by glibc rather than
having to do any more hacks around <fcntl.h>.

I guess those plans haven't come to fruition yet? I'm fine with telling
users to use <linux/openat2.h> in the meantime.
