The current status is that the patch is in HEAD but the one line
fsyncing the directory is #ifdef'd out.
The backpatched fsync of the directory is entirely reverted from early branches.
However I was just looking at the code and realized it has a file
descriptor leak if an error occurs re-opening the files to fsync them.
But then the same file descriptor leak is there if it has an error
opening the destination file so I guess this isn't a new bug.
