This has *nothing* to do with the dietlibc!

Your are quite unprecise with your statements.  Which fcntl do you mean?
Are you talking about l4vfs/lib/server/fcntl.c?  This is the weak
implementation of the server lib.  Every server which implements fcntl()
functionality shall provide its own impl. overriding this weak dummy impl.

I think you now know were to start coding ...

I dont know of any such thing.
