       lfc_mkdir - create a new LFC directory in the name server


       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include "lfc_api.h"

       int lfc_mkdir (const char *path, mode_t mode)


       lfc_mkdir creates a new LFC directory in the name server.

       An entry is created in the name server database and the directory's owner ID is set to the
       effective user ID of the requestor.  The group ID of the directory is set to the effective
       group  ID  of  the  requestor  or is taken from the parent directory if the latter has the
       S_ISGID bit set.

       The access permission bits for the directory are taken from mode, then all bits set in the
       requestor's  file mode creation mask are cleared (see lfc_umask(3)).  The S_ISGID, S_ISUID
       and S_ISVTX bits are silently cleared.

       path   specifies the logical pathname relative to the current LFC directory  or  the  full
              LFC pathname.


       This  routine  returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In
       the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.


       ENOENT       A component of path prefix does not exist or path is a null pathname.

       EACCES       Search permission is denied on a  component  of  the  path  prefix  or  write
                    permission on the parent directory is denied.

       EFAULT       path is a NULL pointer.

       EEXIST       path exists already.

       ENOTDIR      A component of path prefix is not a directory.

       ENOSPC       The name server database is full.

       ENAMETOOLONG The  length  of  path exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of a path component
                    exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.

       SENOSHOST    Host unknown.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.

       ENSNACT      Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
