  In Linux 6.9 a new flag is added to allow for Per-io operations to
disable append mode even if a file was opened with the flag O_APPEND.
This is done with the new RWF_NOAPPEND flag.

This caused two test failures as these tests expected the flag 0x00000020
to be unused.  Adding the flag definition now fixes these tests on Linux
6.9 (v6.9-rc1).

  FAIL: misc/tst-preadvwritev2
  FAIL: misc/tst-preadvwritev64v2

This patch adds the flag, adjusts the test and adds details to
documentation.

As he mentioned he would be looking into it when this was mentioned in the
LoongArch TLS patch.

   https://sourceware.org/pipermail/libc-alpha/2024-March/155323.html

This also was encountered during OpenRISC testing, and I found a fix.  This has
been found before Linux 6.9 is actually released.  I guess we should not merge
it to glibc until 6.9 is official.  What is the policy on this?

Note,

The subject should at least be "Add support *for* linux uio.h RWF_NOAPPEND flag"
