Thanks for pointing out this, Petr.

Actually, we only use fixed older-version of LTP for long-term supported
distros (e.g RHEL6/7) testing, as it falls into maintaining phase and no new
features are added in. So this won't be a problem for us.

But if we consider fully backward compatibility of newer LTP for old
this is a burden to maintaining work. We might need to make a balance on
the patch accept or reject.

With regard to this simple patch, if you think it's a problem to SLES
12-SP5, I'm
fine to NAK and rewrite with another way (at least for ioctl09 I will do

But if you're OK with making use of fixed LTP on older distros, feel free
to apply this one :).
