Subject: [PATCH perf/core v11 01/20] perf: util: Fix rm_rf() to handle non-regular files correctly
Date: Wed, 15 Jun 2016 12:27:44 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20160615032743.31330.20172.stgit@devbox> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20160615032728.31330.45150.stgit@devbox>

Fix rm_rf() to handle non-regular files correctly. This fix
includes two changes;

 - Fix to use lstat(3) instead of stat(3) since if the target
   file is a symbolic link, rm_rf() should unlink the symbolic
   link itself, not the file which pointed by the symlink.
 - Fix to unlink non-regular files (except for directory),
   including symlink.

Even though the first one fixes to stat symlink itself, without
second fix, it still failed because the symlink is not a regular
file.
