Hi,This is immaterial but fdutils and libdsk both use rely on this flag. Who can know who else does. The point is it should NOT have been changed.

These 2 incremental patches, patch-5.10.19-20 and patch-5.11.2-3 have broken the user land fd = open("/dev/fd0", (O_RDWR | O_NDELAY)); functionality.
Thank you for the report, I'm looking into this.
Since FOREVER before the patch, when using O_NDELAY, one could open the floppy device with no media inserted or even with write protected media without error. "Read-only file system" status is returned only when we actually tried to write to it. We have software still in use today that relies on this functionality.
If it's a project with open sources could you please give a link?
Yes, I asked this only to add utils and this behavior to the tests.
And be more specific about why we should preserve this behavior in
next commit messages.
