I think this patch is fine.  This was in SUSv2, and I don't feel bad
about siding with a spec that's at least 17 years old.

While the spec may allow this, we cannot for practical reasons.  There
are a large number of broken Windows programs that don't honor the spec
when it says to interpret UTF-16 byte sequences without a BOM as
big-endian, and instead use little-endian.  Since we cannot fix all the
broken Windows programs people use, we need to emit the BOM in UTF-16

Does setting FREAD_READS_DIRECTORIES fix this?
