    LINUX: fix RedHat 7.5 ENOTDIR issues
    Red Hat Linux 7.5 beta introduces a new file->f_mode flag
    FMODE_KABI_ITERATE as a means for certain in-tree filesystems to
    indicate that they have implemented file operation iterate() instead of
    readdir().  The kernel routine iterate_dir() tests this flag to decide
    whether to invoke the file operation iterate() or readdir().
    The OpenAFS configure script detects that the file operation iterate()
    is available under RH7.5 and so implements iterate() as
    afs_linux_readdir().  However, since OpenAFS does not set
    FMODE_KABI_ITERATE on any of its files, the kernel's iterate_dir() will
    not invoke iterate() for any OpenAFS files.  OpenAFS has also not
    implemented readdir(), so iterate_dir() must return -ENOTDIR.
    Instead, modify OpenAFS to fall back to readdir() in this case.
