BTW It reminds me commit 0fb44559ffd6 ("af_unix: move unix_mknod() out of
bindlock"), which while fixing a problem also for certain usage changed changed
from -EINVAL to -EADDRINUSE. Proposed fix to restore old behavior [1] was not
accepted, 0fb44559ffd6 was merged to some stable kernels so the behavior also
As there is no way to move these NFSv3 related definitions to uapi to make it
visible for userspace, I'd be for changing errno.
