       lfc_mkdirg  -  create  a  new LFC directory in the name server with the
       specified GUID


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

       int lfc_mkdirg (const char *path, const char *guid, mode_t mode)


       lfc_mkdirg creates a new LFC directory in  the  name  server  with  the
       specified GUID.

       An entry is created in the name server database with the given GUID 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

       guid   specifies the Grid Unique IDentifier.

       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.

       EEXIST       path exists already.
