patch@26996 - patch around stat("_NLA0:") bug
Message ID:
In vmsish.h:

*  Fix a typo for vms specific st_fab_mrs macro that was not noticed 
because currently nothing uses it.

* Create macros VMS_INO_T_COMPARE and VMS_INO_T_COPY to hide difference 
from traditional VMS specific ino_t array type and standard 64 bit ino_t 

In vms.c:

1. Set default to have /dev/null work around active until it can be 
verified that the problem is fixed.  The logical name DECC_BUG_DEVNULL 
can be used to deactivate the work around.

2. Convert all ino_t compares or assignments to use the macros in vmsish.h.

3. Fix the test for /dev/null to only check the first 9 characters.
