Added kStuff from the VirtualBox sources 4.2.12, spent some time removing
#include <sys/fcntl.h> and adding making sure nobody thinks we
HAVE_DIRENT_D_TYPE, constants for HAIKU in a file I can't locate anymore,
and finally I can't figure out what comes next after finding futimes
undeclared and futimesat unavailable as a replacement as in solaris.

Sorry to spam the list with this Oracle stuff, I am very impressed with the
depth of this work and the apparent distance traveled by everyone since
last time I tried haiku, and I am going to go put Haiku on some bare metal
as an experiment.
