+ read(2) of a directory fd is now rejected by default. root may
+ re-enable it for system root only on non-ZFS filesystems with the
+ security.bsd.allow_read_dir sysctl(8) MIB if
+ security.bsd.suser_enabled=1.
+
+ It may be advised to setup aliases for grep to default to `-d skip` if
+ commonly non-recursively grepping a list that includes directories and
+ the potential for the resulting stderr output is not tolerable. Example
+ aliases are now installed, commented out, in /root/.cshrc and
+ /root/.shrc.
