Speaking of which. I see there's a bugreport about that filed in debian and
in redhat, - people do wonder why their setups broke with samba upgrade.
I don't think there was a big issue to keep old "compat" names for the new
calls. Looking at source3/modules/vfs_full_audit.c, - there's no issue to
support both naming schemes.

More, the "old" scheme (with mkdir and open, as opposed to mkdirat and
openat) is definitely more native, intuitive, understandable. The fact
that the open call is done using openat syscall is an implementation detail,
the thing actually done is open, the traditional and universally understood
open. So to me it looks like this rename is a bug.
