    Description

      I am testing subversion 1.10.4 on AIX 7.2

      1. oslevel -s
        7200-03-00-0000

      While executing the following command , it gives error.

      1. svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /reshma/svn
        svnadmin: E000009: Can't write '/reshma/svn/db/current' atomically
        svnadmin: E000009: Can't flush file '/reshma/svn/db' to disk: A file descriptor does not refer to an open file.

      This is because in AIX, fsync called on a directory returns errno=EBADF which makes subversions/libsvn_subr/io.c:svn_io_flush_to_disk {{}}fail.

      To fix this, I created a patch. Here I am checking if the platform is AIX.
