Right, but it's confusing now as the comment refers to O_TMPFILE but
__O_TMPFILE is being used. I'd include a comment in there on why it's
__O_TMPFILE and not O_TMPFILE, that's the interesting bit. As it stands,
you'd read the comment and look at the code and need to figure that on
your own. Hence it deserves a comment.
