rmdirtest - test removing in-use directories

Note that while it is not legal to remove the . entry in a directory, it is perfectly legal to remove a directory by name that happens to be some process's (or your own) current working directory.


rmdirtest uses the following system calls:

rmdirtest should run correctly once the file system assignment is complete.
