This is a first draft of the man-page changes for the openat2(2) patch
series I'm working on[1]. It includes information about the magic-link
changes as well as the primary new features (O_EMPTYPATH and openat2).

Let me know what you think. I might go into too much detail about how
extension of openat2(2) will work -- let me know if that section should
be dropped (while it is useful for userspace to understand, it isn't
really that necessary to explain exactly what the semantics are -- it
will usually just transparently work).
