well I'm happy with dash as minimal shell, but indeed it is
great if klibc supports mksh. Already quite some stuff was
uncovered on that porting path!

You mean the variadic unfix of open(), well this was noted to
need an m68k specific workaround, will note on the todo section.

Indeed didn't see anything yet, which is quite some time ago.
Now that m68k troubles in linux 3.X got sorted, could you please
repost it with a link to latest klibc git, so that they might try
it out.

Equally great would be a repost of that mkstemp(), afair it had
a second round of review already.

thank you.
