    Preserve errno across _PC_CHOWN_RESTRICTED call on XFS
    
    Fix BZ #15305.
    
    On kernel versions earlier than 2.6.29, the Linux kernel exported a
    sysctl called restrict_chown for xfs, which could be used to allow
    chown to users other than the owner.  2.6.29 removed this support,
    causing the open_not_cancel_2 to fail and thus modify errno.  The fix
    is to save and restore errno so that the caller sees it as unmodified.
    
    Additionally, since the code to check the sysctl is not useful on
    newer kernels, we add an ifdef so that in future the code block gets
    rmeoved completely.
