Default Bug#276500: #276500: utimensat added as syscall

For what it's worth, coreutils 6.12 and newer now use utimensat if
available; and when coupled with a new enough kernel, no longer
demonstrate the original issue reported against touch(1). However, in
testing the coreutils patch to use utimensat, it was discovered that at
least some versions of the kernel have a buggy utimensat syscall that
return a bogus positive number instead of -1 on failure:
