Subject: nftw: FTW_CHDIR defined but not implemented


The musl implementation of nftw does presently not implement the
FTW_CHDIR flag, which is mandated by POSIX. Unfortunately, musl does
define this macro in the ftw.h header file which makes software using
this flag compile but causes unexpected failures at run-time.
Implementing this feature would likely require a larger overhaul of the
current nftw implementation. Maybe it makes sense to remove the
FTW_CHDIR macro from ftw.h as a short-term workaround in the meantime to
prevent cumbersome run-time failures?
