The 2 patches above delay the detection of an already existing file
until MoveFile in io-layer is called. If the file is the same (same
device and inode), it does not fail (rename(2) does not fail).
Dick, okay to commit?

+The patch is OK, I would change the io.c comment to say something more
+explicit about the MoveFile behavour. eg "MoveFile sets
+ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS if the destination exists, except when it is the
+same file as the source. In that case it silently succeeds."
