That part is fine but I'm still concerned that the code doesn't know if 
there is lutimes support or not. If there is lutimes support then we'd 
skip the openFileAttributeAccess when !followLinks and the file is a sym 
link. I guess I was expecting a new capabilities bit to be added so that 
UnixNativeDispacher.init returns the bit set when the platform supports 
the feature.
