This is broken, since fcntl is variadic and you're calling it like a non-variadic function. C doesn't guarantee that variadic and non-variadic ABIs are compatible—this will break watchOS and ARM64 iOS/tvOS, for instance. The latest open-source builds should provide a working fcntl in the Darwin/Glibc overlays.
