[blead-442-gc6d234b] VMS stat fixes.
Message ID:
VMS stat fixes:

1. Allow null thread context.

2. First use VMS syntax for files and directories then fall back to Unix 
syntax with EFS enabled.

3. When Unix syntax with EFS is used, EFS must also be used to store the 
resultant filename.

4. fid_to_name() needs to use the same algorithm as stat() for consistency.

5. fid_to_name() followed by a flex_stat/flex_lstat call to see if this 
is a directory is a waste of cycles.

Still more to come.
