commit 53648039c4efa32941bf567f9d0ab2f4c012cc4d
Author: David Bright <>

    Add an shm_rename syscall
    Add an atomic shm rename operation, similar in spirit to a file
    rename. Atomically unlink an shm from a source path and link it to a
    destination path. If an existing shm is linked at the destination
    path, unlink it as part of the same atomic operation. The caller needs
    the same permissions as shm_unlink to the shm being renamed, and the
    same permissions for the shm at the destination which is being
    unlinked, if it exists. If those fail, EACCES is returned, as with the
    other shm_* syscalls.
    truss support is included; audit support will come later.
    This commit includes only the implementation; the sysent-generated
    bits will come in a follow-on commit.
