Why use a special value AT_FDCWD instead of None? It is not Pythonish. Clearly, when it is used in C, but in dynamically typed Python we are not limited to only one C-type. 

Such a large number of new functions littering the namespace. Why not just add additional arguments to existing functions? Instead 'fstatat(dirfd, path, flags=0)' let it be 'stat(path, *, dirfd=None, flags=0)' or even better 'stat(path, *, dirfd=None, followlinks=True)' (as in os.fwalk).
